Send the Light

Date recorded: February 22, 2013


Words by: Charles H. Gabriel


Music by: Charles H. Gabriel

There’s a call comes ringing o’er the restless wave:
Send the light!  Send the light!
There are souls to rescue there are souls to save:
Send the light!  Send the light!

Chorus

We have heard the Macedonian call today:
Send the light!  Send the light!
And a golden off’ring at the cross we lay:
Send the light!  Send the light!

Chorus

Let us pray that grace may ev’rywhere abound:
Send the light!  Send the light!
And a Christ-like spirit ev’rywhere be found:
Send the light!  Send the light!

Chorus

Let us not grow weary in the work of love:
Send the light!  Send the light!
Let us gather jewels for a crown above:
Send the light!  Send the light!

Chorus

Send the light!  the blessed gospel light;
Let it shine from shore to shore!
Send the light!  the blessed gospel light;
Let it shine for evermore.
