Send Out a Light (Hymn)

Send Out a Light
Mary Bernstecher (1916)

Send out a light as you go your way,
A beacon of hope when shadows are gray;
Send out a light that for Jesus will shine,
Proving to others God’s mercy divine.

Refrain
Send out a light, a radiant light,

That will pierce thro’ the gloom
Of someone’s dark night,
Send out a light, a bright beaming light,
Send out a light for Jesus.

Send out a light when your burdens press,
And show to the world that Jesus will bless;
Thro’ darkest sorrows and bitterest pain,
Send out a light—it will not shine in vain.

Refrain

Send out a light unto those who stray,
All heedless along destruction’s highway;
Point them to pathways of purer delight,
And let your life daily send out a light.

Refrain

This hymn is all about sending out the gospel light to the world around us.  There are people in darkness all around us.  Are we doing anything to make sure that they see the light?  Are we shining our light brightly, or are we allowing our light to be hidden?
