I, the Lord, of sea and sky
I have heard my people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will see
I who made, the stars and night,
I will make the darkness bright
Who will bare my life to them?
Whom shall I send?
I will break the hearts of stone
Heal their hearts for love alone
I will speak my word to them
Who 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

I, the Lord, of wind and flame
I will tend the poor and lame
I will send peace for them
My hand will say
Finest bread I will provide
Till their hearts be satisfied
I will give my life to them
Who 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

(baby crying)
Happy birthday, baby Jesus!
You look fantastic

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

    My InterpretationThis song is what my Mother-In-Law was all about. I never got to meet her because she left us too early 10/18/1988. She lived her life like we should all try to live it. Caring, loving, sacraficing, giving, and then giving some more. Always trying to do what she believed was right....... " What you do for others, you do for me "

    General CommentGod is insecure and indecisive in light of all the pain and misery according to this well known hymn. Still God has no problem boasting all the fantastic things he could do.
