Full Text

1 My Saviour needs helpers from day to day,
To serve Him on land and sea;
And so I am ready to speed away—
I'll go where He sendeth me.

Chorus:
I'll go, I'll go,
A help to my Lord to be;
I'll go, I'll go,
Wherever He sendeth me.

2 So many are needing the Gospel light,
So many mad free would be;
And so, to be useful with all my might,
I'll go where He sendeth me. [Chorus]

3 The way may be dreary and thorny, too,
But His blessed smile I'll see,
And so, for my Saviour my best to do,
I'll go where He sendeth me. [Chorus]
