1. 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!
Refrain: Send the light, the blessed gospel light; Let it shine from shore to shore! Send the light, the blessed gospel light; Let it shine forevermore!
2. 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!
3. Let us pray that grace may ev’rywhere abound, Send the light! Send the light! And a Christlike spirit ev’rywhere be found, Send the light! Send the light!
