1 Send the Light, O send it quickly,
Far across the heaving main;
Speed the news of full Salvation
Thro' the great Redeemer's name.
Send the light, O send it quickly,
To the isles, beyond the sea;
Let them hear the wondrous story--
Love is boundless, grace is free.
2 Send the Light, where souls are dying
In their darkness, gloom and night;
Haste, O haste! the days are fleeting,
And the hours--how swift their flight! [Chorus]
3 Send the Light, the world is waiting;
Hands are stretch'd across the main;
Oh, that piercing cry of anguish!
Must it plead with us in vain? [Chorus]
4 Send the Light, the Lord commands it;
To His Holy Word attend;
"Go ye forth and preach my gospel;
Lo, I'm with you to the end." [Chorus]
