Here am I; send me.@Isaiah 6:8

M. W. Spencer, 1893 (🔊 pdf nwc).

There is much to do, there’s work on every hand;
Hark! the cry for help comes ringing thro’ the land;
Jesus calls for reapers, I must active be;
What wilt Thou, O Master? Here am I, send me.

Refrain

Here am I; Lord, send me;
Here am I, ready at Thy bidding,
Lord send me!

There’s the plaintive cry of mourning souls distressed,
And the sigh of hearts who seek but find no rest;
These should have my love and tender sympathy;
Ready at Thy bidding, here am I, send me.

Refrain

There are hungering souls who cry aloud for bread;
With the Bread of Life they’re longing to be fed;
Shall they starve and famish while a feast is free?
I must be more faithful; here am I, send me.

Refrain

There are souls who linger on the brink of woe;
Lord, I must not, cannot bear to let them go;
Let me go and tell them, brother, turn and flee;
Master, I would save them; here am I, send me.

Refrain
