If You Were Lost

If you were lost in darkness with no one to show you the way…
Would you want someone to bring you a light?

If no one had told you of Jesus at all—His love—His compassion—His death
Oh, wouldn’t you want the message to come…Before you’ve drawn your last breath?

If sinking in evil traditions, you were bound by what you believed—helpless and hopeless
Oh, wouldn’t you want a chance at least be freed?

Would you want them to wait while they built a new home…and paid for a “still better” car, or
while making home base an elegant place—before sending the message afar?

Would you want them to table the plans that were made to expand missions this year—because of conditions around the world, and the days of uncertainty here?

Would you want them to wait with the message of hope…while you are dying and lost?
Oh, I know that your answer would ring through the gloom…Please send it at any cost!

So let’s send it out to the missions in need…the light that will show them the way.
Oh, if it were you in darkness and night…you’d want it—you’d want it today!
