127. Send the Light

1 There are lands far away o'er the sea,
Where in darkness lost souls seek the light,
And the call is to you and to me,
Who are walking the "path shining bright."

Chorus:
Send the light o'er the sea,
In the dark heathen lands let it shine;
Till the whole world should walk,
In the light of the gospel divine.

2 In the darkness of error they grope,
And the Saviour in whom we abide
Cannot cheer with the bright ray of hope,
Till we teach them to walk by his side. [Chorus]

3 Bearing light is a part we may do,
Holding high that it may reach afar,
And the soft rays of truth may anew
Shine on earth from the bright morning star. [Chorus]

4 Those who lead souls to light all divine,
Those who tell of God's wonderful love,
As the bright stars forever shall shine
In that beautiful land far above. [Chorus]
