Here am I, Send Me

Words by Daniel March Music by S. M. Grannis

"Hark! the voice of Jesus crying,—
'Who will go and work to-day?'“

I found this poem in a newspaper and, set the words to a tune by S. M. Grannis entitled ”Your Mission”—a hymn which was sung in the Senate Chamber in Washington by Philip Phillips on one occasion when Abraham Lincoln was present. The President was so charmed with the song that he requested that it be repeated.
