Representative Text

1 Far away beyond the deep,
On the winds that never sleep,
Precious souls in heathen lands
Reach to us their pleading hands.

Hear the cry, O send the light,
You whose homes are ward and bright;
Send the light our hearts to cheer,
Leave us not to perish here.

2 O’er the wild and heaving main
Shall their cry be heard again;
Let our hearts with pity glow,
And our tears in sorrow flow. [Refrain]

3 Haste the word of truth to bear
On the wings of faith and prayer;
Haste the bread of life to break
For the dear Redeemer’s sake. [Refrain]
