Representative Text

1 There are souls that wait for the Gospel light,
Jesus calls for thee;
Will your answer be, if by day or night,
“Here am I, send me?”

Refrain:
Will you say when the Master calls,
“Send me, send me,
I am ready now for Thy service, Lord,
All I am I give to Thee?”
Will you say when the Master calls,
“Send me, send me,
I am ready now for Thy service, Lord,
Here am I, send me?”

2 If to bear His cross into lands unknown
Far beyond the sea,
Will your heart respond, tho’ you go alone,
“Here am I, send me?” [Refrain]

3 If I bear a cross I shall win a crown,
Ready I shall be,
Try to bear it well ‘till I lay it down,
Should He call on me. [Refrain]
