1.  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?

    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.

2.  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?

3.  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?
