1 Now that harvest-time is here,
Will you be a volunteer?
For the workers of the Lord are few;
Will you answer, "Here am I,
In Thy cause to do or die,"
If the Master's call should come to you?

Refrain:
Here am I, send me,
Here am I, send me
Over land or over sea;
Wheresoe'er the end may be,
Here am I, send me.

2 Sin is rife on ev'ry hand,
'Tis no time to idle stand,
Let us bravely help, its pow'r to stay;
Speak to someone, lost in sin,
Of the love of Christ within;
Help to spread the gospel light today. [Refrain]

3 Lord, I consecrate to Thee
All I am, or hope to be;
In Thy service I will e'er be true,
Winning souls from sin's dark night
To the glorious gospel light,
Which alone can wasted lives renew. [Refrain]
