How many are out of the fold to-day
How many have gone from Jesus away,
O, how many have wandered astray,
Out of the straight and narrow array,
Foll'wer of Jesus, bring them back
To the straight and narrow track.

Tenderly beckon and gently entreat,
Poor wanderers back to the Master's feet,
And tell them He will not repentance spurn,
Tell them He's anxious for their return,
Sweetly tell them to come back
To the straight and narrow track.

Tell them to kneel at the cross and pray,
Tell them He will not cast them away;
Tell them He wants them for Him to live,
Tell them He'll all their back-slidings forgive
If they only will come back
To the straight and narrow track.

O, child of God, go and bring them in
From the rough, hard, stony path of sin,
Bring them out of the rain and cold,
Bring them into the Master's warm fold;
Foll'wer of Jesus, bring them back
To the straight and narrow track.
