No. 18. Here am I, Send Me
" I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us ? Then said I, Here am I ; send me."—Isaiah vi. 8.
2. If you cannot cross the ocean,
And the heathen lands explore,
You can find the heathen nearer,
You can help them at your door.
If you cannot give your thousands,
You can give the widow's mite;
And the least you do for Jesus
Will be precious in His sight.
3. If you cannot speak like angels,
4. If you cannot be the watchman,
Standing high on Zion's wall,
Pointing out the path to heaven,
Offering life and peace to all;
With your prayers and with your bounties
You can do what heaven demands;
You can be like faithful Aaron,
Holding up the prophet's hands.
5. if among the older people
You may not be apt to teach;
" Feed My lambs," said Christ our Shepherd,
" Place' the food within their reach."
And it may be that the children,
You have led with trembling hand,
Will be found among your jewels,
When you reach the better land.
|6. Let none hear you idly saying,
" There is nothing I can do,"
While the souls of men are dying.
And the Master calls for you.
Take the task He gives you gladly,
Let His work your pleasure be;
Answer quickly when He calleth,
" Here am I, send me, send me !"
