    This past Sunday I was struck by the invitation song we sang. I've used it before, but after a sermon on the importance of service in the Kingdom, we sang "Lord, Here Am I". It's #486 in the Baptist Hymnal. Worth checking out:

    Lord, Here Am I (Crosby, Beck) (C) 1984 Beckenhorst Press, Inc.

    1. Master, Thou callest, I gladly obey.
    Only direct me and I’ll find Thy way.
    Teach me the mission appointed for me;
    What is my labor and where it shall be.
    Master, Thou callest and this I reply,
    “Ready and willing, Lord, here am I!"

    2.Willing my Savior, to take up the cross;
    Willing to suffer reproaches and loss.
    Willing to follow if Thou will but lead,
    Only support me with grace in my need.
    Master, Thou callest and this I reply,
    “Ready and willing, Lord, here am I!”

    3. Living or dying, I still would be Thine.
    Yet, I am mortal while Thou art divine.
    Pardon, whenever I turn from the right,
    Pity and bring me again to the light.
    Master, Thou callest and this I reply,
    “Ready and willing, Lord, here am I!"

    Songs are so much like Scripture. You can read, sing, hear, memorize AND yet, there is a time, a place, a moment -- when it's new and refreshing and revealing. A time when it hits you in a way that will take the very breath from you with its meaning.

    Praise God for those moments.

    Oh, I absolutely love this hymn. One of my favorites and it very meaningful to me as well. Thanks for bringing it up
