Here Am I

Representative Text

1 Work for Jesus, little ones,
He has work for you;
At your home, at school, at play,
There is work to do.

Refrain:
Here am I, Lord Jesus,
Here am I—send me!
Let me do Thy bidding,
Let me work for Thee.

2 Someone needs a helping hand—
Help with all your might;
Little hands may helpers be,
Making burdens light. [Refrain]

3 Someone needs a little time—
You have time to spare;
Be a helper, little one,
Helping everywhere. [Refrain]
