ONLY FOR SOULS

“Missionary Gems” — A collection of short poems
Compiled from various sources — Gospel Trumpet Company
Only for souls, our life’s work shall be;

Only for souls, till death shall set free,

We’ll strive as those running after earth’s goals,

Only for souls, only for souls.

Only for souls, while the tear-drops start;

Only for souls, though with aching heart;

Go friendships and pleasures — your death knell tolls;

Only for souls, only for souls.

Only for souls, be it far or near;

Only for souls, the summons we’ll hear,

From the heat of the tropics to earth’s icy poles;

Only for souls, only for souls.

Only for souls, though the conflict be long;

Only for souls, ‘gainst an enemy strong;

Victorious the issue — our God all controls;

Only for souls, only for souls.

Only for souls, mid reproaches and scorns;

Only for souls, o’er the pathway of thorns,

With sheepskins and goatskins, in dens, caves, and holes ;

Only for souls, only for souls.
