578 - So Send I You

So send I you by grace made strong to triumph
Oe’r 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 death’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.”
