Send the light, oh, send it quickly
Far across the heaving main;
Speed the news of full salvation,
Thro’ a dear Redeemer’s name.


Send the light, oh, send it quickly
To the isles beyond the sea;
Let them hear the wondrous story—
Love is boundless, grace is free!

Send the light, where souls are dying
In their darkness, gloom, and night;
Haste, oh haste! the days are fleeting,
And the hours—how swift their flight.


Send the light—the Lord commands it!
To His Holy Word attend:
Go ye forth and preach My Gospel;
Lo! I’m with you to the end.
