Send The Light

 O send out thy light and thy truth: 
let them lead me; 
let them bring me unto thy holy hill, 
and to thy tabernacles.
- Psalm 43:3 -

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!
- Charles H. Gabriel -

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 
I am the light of the world: 
he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 
but shall have the light of life.
- John 8:12 -

 Let your light so shine before men, 
that they may see your good works, 
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
- Matthes 5:16 -

Have a most blessed and beautiful Lord's Day!
Sweet hugs to you!

Hi there, Stranger, lol!
We've lost touch and I thought it was definitely time to reconnect. These words are definitely what I needed to hear today, my friend. Thank you! With so much going on in the world at the moment, this is a reminder that will stay in my heart and help me try to understand.
I hope all is well with you, beautiful lady!

Hello, Yes the light does bring life and the darkness cannot hide. The photos were perfect with the words. I wanted to tell you after reading your post on your sewing room I got into my craft room and really did clean and organized it and pulled out my beading stuff!
I loved my special labels...
Thank you for being you!
Hugs, Roxy

I do pray that God's light could shine through more of us, then there would not be all this hate and confusion and hurt in the world, May God's shining light shine forth and touch the souls of all of us!
