Verse 1: Hark! The voice of Jesus crying, “Who will go and work today? Fields are ripe and harvests waiting; Who will bear the sheaves away?” Loud and long the Master calleth; Rich reward He offers thee. Who will answer, gladly saying, “Here am I send me, send me”?
Verse 2: If you cannot speak like angels, If you cannot preach like Paul, You can tell the love of Jesus; You can say, “He died for all.” If you cannot rouse the wicked With the Judgment’s dread alarms, You can lead the little children To the Savior’s waiting arms.
Verse 3: If you cannot be a watchman, Standing high on Zion’s wall, Pointing out the path to heaven, Off’ring life and peace to all, With your pray’rs and with your off’rings You can do what God demands; You can be like faithful Aaron, holding up the prophet’s hands.
Verse 4: Let none hear you idly saying, “There is nothing I can do,” While the multitudes 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!”
