486. Lord, Here Am I

1. Master, Thou callest, I gladly obey;
Only direct me, and I'll find Thy way.
Teach me the mission appointed for me,
What is my labor, and where it shall be.

Master, Thou callest, and this I reply,
"Ready and willing,
Lord, here am I."

2. Willing, my Savior, to take up the cross;
Willing to suffer reproaches and loss.
Willing to follow, if Thou will but lead;
Only support me with grace in my need.

Master, Thou callest, and this I reply,
"Ready and willing,
Lord, here am I."

3. Living, or dying I still would be Thine;
Yet I am mortal while Thou art divine.
Pardon, whenever I turn from the right;
Pity, and bring me again to the light.

Master, Thou callest, and this I reply,
"Ready and willing,
Lord, here am I."
