310. So Send I You

1 So send I you - to labor unrewarded,
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing -
So send I you, to toil for Me alone.

2 So send I you - to bind the bruised and broken,
O'er wand'ring souls to work, to weep, to wake,
To bear the burdens of a world aweary -
So send I you, to suffer for My sake.

3 So send I you - to loneliness and longing,
With heart a-hung'ring for the loved and known,
Forsaking home and kindred, friend and dear one -
So send I you, to know My love alone.

4 So send I you - to leave your life's ambition,
To die to dear desire, self-will resign,
To labor long, and love where men revile you -
So send I you, to lose your life in Mine.

5 So send I you - to hearts made hard by hatred,
To eyes made blind because they will not see,
To spend, tho it be blood, to spend and spare not -
So send I you, to taste of Calvary.

"As the Father hath sent Me,
So send I you."
