Romans 10:14
"How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed?
and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard?
and how shall they hear without a preacher?"

          So send I you to labor unrewarded,
          To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
          To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing,
          So send I you to toil for Me alone.

            Chorus
            As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you.

          So send I you to bind the bruised and broken,
          O'er wand'ring souls to work, to weep, to wake,
          To bear the burdens of a world aweary,
          So send I you to suffer for My sake.

            Chorus
            As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you.

          So send I you to loneliness and longing,
          With hearts a hung'ring for the loved and known,
          Forsaking home and kindred, friend and dear one,
          So send I you, to know My love alone.

            Chorus
            As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you.

          So send I you to leave your life's ambition,
          To die to dear desire, self will resign,
          To labor long, and love where men revile you,
          So send I you to lose your life in Mine.

            Chorus
            As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you.

          So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred,
          To eyes made blind because they will not see,
          To spend, tho' it be blood, to spend and spare not,
          So send I you to taste of Calvary.

            Chorus
            As the Father hath sent Me, so send I you.
