1 O’er the mountain, thro’ the valley,
Or e’en where the dark waters flow;
Into crowded street or alley,
Should my Savior call me, I’ll go.
He found me lost and forsaken;
My heart from sin He made free;
And now, with courage unshaken,
I answer, "Here, Lord, send me."

Refrain:
Send me, O Lord, on a mission!
Whenever, wherever it be,
In willing and loyal submission,
I’ll answer, "Here, Lord, send me."

2 To the dwellings of the lowly,
Or mansions all stately and grand,
With the message pure and holy,
I will go at my Lord’s command.
No matter where I am needed,
At home, or over the sea,
His call will ever be heeded,
I’ll answer, "Here, Lord, send me." [Refrain]

3 O if I can only lighten
The burden of someone oppressed;
Or by deeds of kindness brighten
For a moment some life distressed,
I’ll gladly work in God’s vineyard,
His humble servant will be;
And when He calleth for laborers,
I’ll answer, "Here, Lord, send me." [Refrain]
