Lo here I am to do thy will

Representative Text

1 Lo! here am I to do Thy will, O Lord;
Lo! here am I attentive to Thy word;
Thy will is mine, to do or dare or die—
Only let me know Thy pleasure,
Lo! here am I.

Speed, speed my feet in Thy service so sweet;
With loving hands I will do Thy commands;
Only supply ample grace from on high,—
Master, let me know Thy pleasure;
Lo! here am I.

2 Lo! here am I, and all I have is Thine;
Lo! here am I to do Thy will divine;
On errands for my Saviour would I fly;
Send me wheresoe’er Thou willest,
Lo! here am I. [Refrain]

3 I do not ask for treasures here below;
I do not seek the path before to know,
Only reveal where I shall go, not why—
Master, let me know Thy pleasure,
Lo! here am I. [Refrain]
