There Are Souls Opprest Oppressed By Sor


There are souls opprest by sorrow all along life’s rugged way,
There are lonely hearts to comfort and to cheer;
They are waiting, they are longing for a word of love today,
Let us shed the light of love around them here.

Refrain:
Love, love, the light of love,
Some poor lonely heart to comfort and to cheer;
Love, love, the light of love,
Let us shed the light of love around them here.

In a world where sin and sickness, want and trouble, too abound,
We may bring a little bit of heaven near;
If we scatter words of kindness and sweet smiles of love around,
If we shed the light of love around them here. [Refrain]

To that country free from sorrow they are passing from our sight,
Souls that we might help, and friends we love so dear;
In that land the Lord Jehovah is their everlasting light,
Let us shed the light of love around them here. [Refrain]
