Over the billows sighing,
Millions in sin are dying,
Dying in sad despair.
Point them to Calvary’s mountain,
To the Redeemer there.

Refrain

Out from the darkness
There comes the sad cry:
Save us, oh, save us,
We perish and die.

Glory our way o’erspreading,
Bright is the path we’re treading,
Under a cloudless sky;
While in their sunless prison
Helpless the heathen die.

Refrain

Hopelessly blind and weeping,
Sowing in sin and reaping,
Reaping its sure reward.
Tell them of Jesus’ dying,
How it doth life afford.

Refrain

Still is the Savior pleading,
Go with the torch of freedom,
Go with His love aflame!
Love will beguile the wanderer,
Home from his guilt and shame.

Refrain
