Representative Text

1. Early in the morning, blessed Saviour,
Samuel like I'd be,
Leaving ev'ry sinful pleasure, saying:
"Here am I, send me!"

Here am I, here am I,
Here am I, send me!
Ready for Thy service
Ever would I be,
Here am I, send me, send me!

2. Early in the morning, blessed Saviour,
I would come to Thee,
Bringing all my earthly treasure, saying:
"Here am I, send me!" [Chorus]

3. Early in the morning, blessed Saviour,
I would live for Thee,
So that I may ever be found saying:
"Here am I, send me!" [Chorus]

4. Hasten, ev'ry wand'rer, now to Jesus,
For He calleth thee;
Come and join the heav'nly army, saying:
"Here am I, send me!" [Chorus]

Author: W. E. Penn

Penn, William Evander. (Near village of Old Jefferson, Rutherford County, Tennessee, August 11, 1832--April 29, 1895, Eureka Springs, Arkansas). Southern Baptist. Evangelist in Texas and other states, 1875-1895. Compiled three hymnals titled Harvest Bells (1881, 1884, 1887) for use in his meetings. His hymns were primarily revivalistic in emphasis. His finest hymn, "There is a rock in a weary land, Its shadow falls on the burning sand" was paid the compliment of being reworked and issued under the name of Edward Husband in D.B. Towner's Revival Hymns (Chicago, 1905). He and his wife Corilla Frances Sayle adopted three children. Ordained December 4, 1880. --David W.
