Representative Text

1. Flash out the search light, dark is the way,
Some weary wand’rer is going astray,
Many temptations lurk now at his side,
Many the perils that in his path hide.

Flash out the search light, brighten the way,
Follow the souls that in darkened paths stray,
Search in the highways, search in the byways,
Tell them that Jesus bids them come home.

2. Flash out the search light, bright let it shine,
Bearing the message of mercy divine,
Christ the Redeemer who seeketh for thee,
Offers a pardon so full and so free. [Refrain]

3. Light up the darkness, scatter the night,
There is a brother who longs for the light,
Now he is faltering, do not delay,
Flash out the search light and brighten the way. [Refrain]
