Here I Am, Send Me
Artist: Gerry Rzeppa
Standing by a snow-white throne, the Seraphim sing praises: (Isaiah 6:1-4)
"Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord, God of all the ages!"
Smoke goes up and fills the house; a voice rolls out like thunder:
"Holy, Holy, Lord of hosts!" I bow in shame, and wonder.

Woe is me! for I'm undone, a man of unclean speaking. (Isaiah 6:5-8)
A sinful man in a sinful land, His mercy ever seeking.
He cleanses me of all my sin and has me in His keeping.
Then He speaks: "Whom shall we send?" I fall before Him weeping.

Mend me, bend me, rend me if need be!
Here I am: send me.
Here I am: send me.

Seated on a snow-white horse, the Son of Man comes riding. (Revelation 19:11-16)
King of kings and Lord of lords, His faithfulness abiding.
Many crowns upon His head, His eyes aflame with fire:
Trampling out the grapes of wrath in just and holy ire.

Then I saw Jerusalem coming down from Heaven. (Revelation 21:1-4)
Clean and bright, pure and white: all our sins forgiven.
God will wipe away our tears, and there will be no crying.
No more guilt, and no more fears, no more death or dying!

Take me, make me, break me if need be! (but Jesus)
Here I am: take me.
Here I am, Lord of my life: take me.
Here I am, Lord of my life: take me.
