Full Text

1 How many are lost in the darkness,
With spirits whose sorrow o’erflows;
They know not of Christ or salvation, -
Ah! some one must tell them who knows.

Chorus:
Some one must tell them who knows
The mercy that Jesus bestows:
Oh, let the Light shine, tell the message divine,
For some one must tell them who knows.

2 Go forth to the needy and love them
With something of Jesus’ own love,
And win them to share in His kingdom.
Of gladness and glory above. [Chorus]

3 They’re waiting, perhaps, for your coming;
You surely will hasten to go,
And teach them of life everlasting,
The wonderful Gospel you know. [Chorus]

4 Wherever are sinners around you,
By woe or temptation o’erthrown,
Oh, bid them take freely God’s blessing,
Make Jesus the Comforter known. [Chorus]
