So sent I you- by grace made strong to triumph
O’er hosts of hell, o’er darkness, death, and sin,
May 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 fee,
To break the bonds of sin, to loose dearth’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.”
(SDA Hymn 578)
