Elisha A. Hoffman, 1899 (🔊 pdf nwc).

To the millions living o’er the deep, deep sea
Speed the light, speed the light;
To their cry of pity dare we heedless be?
Speed the light, O speed the light.

Refrain

Speed the light, the blessèd Gospel light,
To the lands which are in gloom and night;
Souls are waiting, and the fields are white,
Speed the light, O speed the light.

There in anguish millions for the Gospel wait,
Speed the light, speed the light;
Go and seek their rescue ere it is too late,
Speed the light, O speed the light.

Refrain

Jesus bids us bear to them the Gospel news,
Speed the light, speed the light;
Can the souls He ransomed His request refuse?
Speed the light, O speed the light.

Refrain

We will go, and in our blessèd master’s name
Speed the light, speed the light;
We will His salvation and His love proclaim,
Speed the light, O speed the light.

Refrain
