So send I you—by grace made strong to triumph
O’er hosts of hell, o’er darkness, death, and sin,
My name to bear, and in that name to conquer—
So send I you, My victory to win.
So send I you—to take to souls in bondage
The word of truth that sets the captive free,
To break the bonds of sin, to loose dearth’s fetters—
So send I you, to bring the lost to Me.
So send I you—My strength to know in weakness,
My joy in grief, my perfect peace in pain,
To prove My power, My grace, My promised presence—
So send I you, eternal fruit to gain.
So send I you—to bear My cross with patience,
And then one day with joy to lay it down,
To hear My voice, “Well done, My faithful servant—
Come, share My throne, My kingdom, and My crown!”
“As the Father hath sent Me, So send I you”
