Let the Gospel Light Shine Out

Let the Gospel Light Shine Out

Standing like a lighthouse on the shores of time,
Looking o’er the waves of darkness, sin, and crime,
Open up your windows, there’s a work sublime,
Let the Gospel light shine out.

Refrain

Let the Gospel light shine out;
Let the Gospel light shine out;
Keep your lamp in order, trimmed and burning bright—
Let the Gospel light shine out.

There are human shipwrecks lying all around,
O, what moral darkness everywhere is found;
Warn some other vessels off from dangerous ground,
Let the Gospel light shine out.

Refrain

Do not let the bushel cover up your light;
Keep your lamp in order, trimmed and burning bright;
Try to be a blessing, brighten up the night,
Let the Gospel light shine out.

Refrain

Try to live for Jesus, till this life is o’er,
For along this pathway you will pass no more;
Till He bids you welcome on the other shore,
Let the Gospel light shine out.

Refrain

Words: Johnson Oatman, Jr., 1900.
