If I can show Jesus to one lonely soul, Dear Lord, let me do it as my daily goal.To rescue a lost and lonely soulAnd know he won't enter the gates of Sheol.This is my wish, Lord, and may it yet beThat I shall bring someone closer to thee.Closer to thee, Lord, o let it be, That I shall bring someone closer to thee.
