1 Just where the Lord may need me,
That’s my choice today;
Trusting His hand to lead me,
Jesus knows the way.

Just where the Lord may need me,
I will gladly go;
Just where the battle is hardest,
He will pow’r bestow;
Send me, use me,
Help me Thy bidding obey;
Send me and use me,
O Master, I will go.

2 Just where His voice shall call me,
I would serve Him there,
Whatever may befall me,
Safe in His own care. [Refrain]

3 Just where His word shall guide me
Always, rain or shine,
Jesus will walk beside me,
Grace and glory mine. [Refrain]
