1 O Saviour, we pray Thee, send out Thy sweet light,
Far over the wide heaving sea;
The nations in darkness are longing for day,
The islands, the islands are waiting for Thee.

Refrain:
They are waiting for Thee,
They are waiting for Thee,
In the hour of their sadness
They are waiting for Thee;
O Saviour, we pray Thee, send out Thy sweet light,
The islands, the islands are waiting for Thee.

2 Inspire with Thy presence, O Saviour divine,
Thy people who know of Thy love,
That forth to the heathen afar may be borne
The message, the message of grace from above. [Refrain]

3 O send now, we pray Thee, some herald of Thine,
Some soul that with peace Thou hast blest,
O bid Him go forth to the nations in chains,
And tell them, and tell them of Jesus and rest. [Refrain]
