HERE AM I - SEND ME

by Charles Robey
(Trussville, AL USA)

I see You on your thrown on high

Your robe now fills your holy place
I see You on Your thrown on high
You are exalted as You fill the sky
Holy, Holy, Holy, is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory
Holy, Holy, Holy is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory

My world trembles at Your voice
I come to You with unclean lips
My world trembles at Your voice
Woe is me I now make my choice
Holy, Holy, Holy, is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory
Holy, Holy, Holy is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory

My ears are dull and my eyes are dim
Touch me with Your burning coals
My ears are dull and my eyes are dim
On Your alter I now leave all my sin
Holy, Holy, Holy, is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory
Holy, Holy, Holy is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory

I hear You Lord, to You I plea
Here am I come now send me
I hear You Lord to You I plea
To You I come on bended knee
Holy, Holy, Holy, is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory
Holy, Holy, Holy is Your power Lord
The whole earth is full of Your glory

Lest I see with my eyes
Lest I hear with my ears
Lest I understand with my heart
I come to You now my Lord
May I never from your will depart

This poem is based on the Old Testament Commission of Isaiah, as given in (Isaiah 6:1-13).

In this passage Isaiah is seen outside, near the altar in front of the temple. The doors are supposed to be open and the veil hiding the Holy of Holies withdrawn, showing a vision of God, attended by His holy angel (1 Kings 22:19), and wearing a robe and train that fills the temple.

The focus of this occasion was to prepare Isaiah for his ministry. And the revelation of the glory of the Lord was the foundation which lead to Isaiah's confession, which brought his cleansing and enabling him to hear the Word of the Lord. This was his commission to preach God's message.

This call could only come after Isaiah's sin had been cleansed. The call came with a question, " Whom shall I send, and who will go for us" ? The same holds true today. We, as Christians, cannot witness to the saving grace of God (Ephesians 2:8-9) until we have been cleansed, by God (Psalm 51:2,7,10)

And God is asking this same question today . Will you go for Him ? (Mark 16:15) Will you support those who have gone to the uttermost parts of the world, in the spread of the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20) ?
