Song background:

I found this song in an old Christian hymnbook, and absolutely loved the words.  I wasn't thrilled with the music, so I wrote an entirely new setting to go along with it.

Lyrics: Hark, the voice of Jesus calling,
who will go and work today?
Fields are ripe and harvests waiting,
who will bear the sheaves away?
Small and still His Spirit calls us,
grand the gifts He offers free;
who will answer gladly saying,
Here am I, O Lord, send me?

If you cannot cross the ocean,
and the distant lands explore,
you can find the lost around you,
you can help them at your door.
If you cannot give your thousands,
you can give the widow's mite;
and the least you do for Jesus,
will be precious in His sight.

If you cannot be the watchman,
standing tall on Zion's wall,
pointing out the path to heaven,
off'ring life and peace to all,
with your prayers and with your off'rings,
you can do what heav'n demands;
You can be like faithful Aaron,
holding up the prophet's hands.

Let none hear you idly saying,
there is nothing I can do,
while the lost of earth 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 calls you,
Here am I, O Lord, send me.
