Dusky hands are reaching for the bread of life
Far across the rolling sea;
Shall they perish in their misery and
Shall they always hungry be?
Send the Gospel tidings over land and sea,
Let the hungry
souls be satisfied,
Till the pow’r of Jesus sets the captives free,
O lead them to the Master’s side.
Dusky hands are bound in chains of want and
In the far off heathen lands;
Shall we not in haste unto their borders go,
Set them free, as God commands?
We cannot be idle any longer now,
While the souls in darkness die;
Gather them as jewels for
the Savior’s brow,
While the days are passing by.
Dusky faces look to us for hope and
Shall they look to us in vain?
Jesus can redeem them, cause their sighs to cease,
Rend their chains of sin in twain.
