9921. Far Beyond The Dark Blue Sea

1 Far beyond the dark blue sea,
Many little children dwell,
In a land of misery,
Where no gentle voices tell
Those glad tidings which impart
Joy and comfort to the heart.

2 But they bend, from day to day,
To their gods, of wood and stone,
For the Gospel’s cheering ray
Has not made the Savior known;
Few the beams of heav’nly light
Shining in their dreadful night.

3 Children dear, if you have found
Pardon through the Savior’s blood,
Seek to spread the joyful sound,
Seek to bring their souls to God;
Share those blessings rich and true,
Which He kindly gives to you
