  • 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

    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
    Who will speak my word 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

    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
    'Til their hearts be satisfied
    I will give my life 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

  • Scott from UsaActually he didn't write this song, he received a copy of the leaked musical score because I know the woman who pen it and came up with the melody. She composed it for her future sons earthly mission.
