John O. Beall
John made his living as an evangelistic singer. He had polio in his youth, but had a beautiful, large baritone voice and was a blessing to thousands of people in his work as a singer. He was one of seven brothers to write the music that was published by the Beall Publishing Company in Douglasville, Georgia. He also helped his brothers to teach singing schools in many churches which were the equivalent of theory classes taught in colleges today, going as far as lessons in harmony for those who wished to study.



"Send a Wave of Salvation"

We are waiting and watching, dear Savior,
For an old time revival we pray;
Thou Who hast all the floods in Thy keeping,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

Send a wave of salvation, dear Savior,
Over city and country, we pray;
To redeem and restore poor lost sinners;
Send a wave of salvation today.

We are praying for sinners, dear Savior,
And for sheep who have wandered astray;
Nothing, Lord, but Thy pow'r can reclaim them,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

Many sad hearts are weeping in sorrow,
For the years have been squandered away;
But their tears without Christ will not save them,
Send a wave of salvation today.

Refrain

In that home of the soul we have loved ones,
We've been lonely since they went away;
O that all may prepare to rejoin them;
Send a wave of salvation today.
