Here I Am, Lord

"I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry.
All who dwell in deepest sin
My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear My light to them?
Whom shall I send?

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borne My people's pain.
I have wept for love of them,
They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak My word to them.
Whom shall I send?

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them,
My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give My life to them.
Whom shall I send!

Here I am, Lord.
Is it I, Lord?
I have heard You calling in the night.
I will go, Lord,
If You lead me.
I will hold Your people in my heart."

~ Daniel L. Schutte ~
Based on Isaiah 6:8

I love that song. If our choir season wasn't ending next month, I would ask Mr. Stuch to let us sing it again - the choral version is amazing.

That's a beautiful poem, the last verse especially.
I feel very strongly that way- Here I am, Lord. I will go if You lead me.
