Send the Light

SKU: 6893248823569

"Send the Light" was the first song written by the converted bandmaster Charles Gabriel. This soul-winning song was originally published as part of the “Hymns in Harmony” series, written by James Boersma for church/school orchestra. This arrangement can be played by various size groups and is challenging enough to be enjoyed by all ages. The time-honored music is refreshing and it gives your instrumental people a great opportunity to minister and contribute as part of the church service. As one music director once said of the "Hymns in Harmony" series, “There’s never been anything like it, before nor since.”

This arrangement has been edited from the original by Paul Hiscock and re-published exclusively by Shepherd’s Staff Ministries.

There's a call comes ringing o'er 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!"

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.
