Let the Gospel Light Shine Out ~ Hymn

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

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.
