I'd like to make my own contribution to the Everything Hymnal, and I must say I'm fairly surpirsed it hasn't been added yet. Thanks to Tiefling for beginning a great, and in my opinion needed, metanode.

Here I am Lord
~St. Francis of Assisi~

I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard My people cry
All who dwell in dark and sin
My hand will save
I who made the stars of night
I will make their darkness bright
Who will bear My love 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.

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?
