1 Jesus, Master, hast Thou messages to send?
Here am I, Here am I!
Waiting, list'ning at Thy feet I lowly bend,
Here am I- O do not pass me by!

Ready for Thy service,
Master, here am I!
Hush my heart to hear Thee calling from on high.
Choose Thou for me, let me still reply
O master, here am I!

2 Saviour, is there not some lowly task to do?
O send me, O send me
Gird me now for service, make me strong and true,
Send me on some errand, Lord, for Thee. [Refrain]

3 Dost Thou need a hand to bear a shining light?
Use my hand, Use my hand!
Dost Thou need a patient watcher in the night?
Let me serve Thee, Lord, at Thy command. [Refrain]

4 Working, waiting, whatsoe'er Thy holy will,
Here am I, Here am I!
Master, let me Thy desire alone fulfill,
Keep me to Thy heart forever nigh. [Refrain]
