168. Send the Light

1 There’s a call comes ringing o’er the restless wave,
“Send the light! Send the light!”
There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save,
Send the light! Send the light!

Refrain:
Send the light! the blessed gospel light;
Let it shine from shore to shore!
Send the light! the blessed Gospel light;
Let it shine forevermore.

2 We have heard the Macedonian call today,
“Send the light! Send the light!”
And a golden off'ring at the cross we lay,
Send the light! Send the light! [Refrain]

3 Let us pray that grace may ev'rywhere abound;
Send the light! Send the light!
And a Christ-like spirit ev'rywhere be found,
Send the light! Send the light! [Refrain]

4 Let us not grow weary in the work of love,
Send the light! Send the light!
Let us gather jewels for a crown above,
Send the light! Send the light! [Refrain]
