1. Hast Thou, O Lord, a work to do?
Here am I, send me!
The field is white, the lab’rers few,
Here am I, send me!

Over mountain, plain or sea,
Here am I, send me!
I’ll go to the ends of the earth for Thee,
Here am I, send me!

2. O touch my lips with fire divine,
Here am I, send me!
The dross consume, the gold refine,
Here am I, send me! [Refrain]

3. A lowly vessel at Thy feet,
Here am I, send me!
O cleanse and for Thy use make meet,
Here am I, send me! [Refrain]

4. My heart now longs and yearns to go,
Here am I, send me!
To reap Thy harvest here below,
Here am I, send me! [Refrain]
