11846. Lord, Send Me

1 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.

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

2 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]

3 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]

4 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]
