Representative Text

1 See now the waves that bathe the shores,
Reflecting light the sun outpours;
So in all lands beneath the sun,
The reign of day is now begun.

Send the light, Oh, send it on!
Till all lands take up the song;
See the suffering where they fall;
Hear, oh, hear, their pleading call.

2 The lands long dark by Satan’s night
Sadly await the coming light;
There millions sink in deadly dread,
No pillow sure for dying head. [Refrain]

3 Too long the light have we withheld,
Whose rays their night would have dispelled;
Speed on the day, the glorious day,
Thro’ Christ, the Light, the Truth, the Way. [Refrain]
