Send the Light
Words and Music by Charles H. Gabriel

Psalm 43:3
"O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me;
let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles."

          There's a call comes ringing over 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
            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!

          We have heard the Macedonian call today,
          "Send the light!  Send the light!"
          And a golden offering at the cross we lay,
          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 forevermore!

          Let us pray that grace may everywhere abound,
          "Send the light!  Send the light!"
          And a Christlike spirit everywhere be found,
          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 forevermore!

          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 forevermore!
