Here I Am, Lord (Dan Schutte)

"Here I Am, Lord" sung at the funeral of Connie Kronholm, January 12, 2019. Church of St. Mary, St. Paul, MN. Cantor: Richard Schletty. Pianist: Mary Joy Rieder. 


1. I, the Lord of sea and sky, I have heard my people cry.
All who dwell in dark and sin My hand will save.
I who made the stars of night, I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them? Whom shall I send?

Here I am, Lord. Is it I, Lord? I have heard you calling in the night.
I will go, Lord, if you lead me. I will hold your people in my heart.

2. I, the Lord of snow and rain, I have borne my people's pain.
I have wept for love of them. They turn away.
I will break their hearts of stone, Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my word to them. Whom shall I send?

Refrain: Here I am, Lord...

3. I, the Lord of wind and flame, I will tend the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them. My hand will save.
Finest bread I will provide Till their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them. Whom shall I send?

Refrain: Here I am, Lord...
