12315. Send The Light

1 There are lands far away o’er the sea,
Where in darkness are souls seeking light,
And the call comes to you and to me,
Who have learned of the way pure and right.

Send the light all the way,
That the marvelous glory divine
Turn the darkness to day,
Till the whole world for Jesus shall shine.

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

3 "Bearing light" is a part we may do,
Holding high that its beams reach afar,
So the light of the truth shine anew,
Beaming forth from the bright "Morning Star." [Refrain]

4 Those who lead souls by light all divine,
Those who tell of God’s wonderful love,
As the stars evermore they shall shine,
In the brightness of glory above. [Refrain]
