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.I will speak my words to them. Whom shall I send? ...

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... Chorus
