Representative Text

DEAR Lord, I do surrender
Myself, my all, to thee;
My time, my store, my talents,
So long withheld by me.
I’ve heard the call for workers,
The world’s great need I see,
O send me to the rescue,
I’m here, my Lord, send me!

Refrain:
Here am!, my Lord, send me,
Here am!, my Lord, send me,
I surrender all to obey thy call,
Here am!, my Lord, send me.

2 Too long at ease in Zion
I’ve been content to dwell,
While multitudes are dying
And sinking into Hell.
I can no more be careless,
And say there’s naught to do,
The fields are white to harvest
And labourers are few.

3 O hear, thou God of Heaven,
The vows that now I make!
To thee my Life is given,
‘Tis for the lost world’s sake.
To serve thee I am ready,
Though friends and foes despise,
I now present my body
A living sacrifice.
