SEND THE LIGHT (1890)


musician/member name: Music
Duration: 00:01:51
description:
Words & Music: Charles H. Gabriel, 1890
My instrument is tuned to CGG & is played on my James "Uncle Ed" Thomas (1850-1933) reproduction dulcimer made by John Knopf.

Lyrics:

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!

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!

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!

Refrain

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!

Refrain

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!

Refrain

Nice play on nice old hymn, David.  When I was young, we sang Send the Light in church.  :)

That's a great old tune David. Your dulcimer has a lovely sound, my congrats to you for the playing and John Knopf for the building.
