Here I am, Lord.  Send me.
      From a very young age, I felt God tug at my heart.  Before I was actually saved I could hear God calling me.  When I was a baby I got a toy piano for Christmas.  I still remember that little piano.  It came with a song book that I played to death!  I have always been involved in some kind of music.  When I was 10, I tried out for Texas Girls Choir and got in.  I loved every minute of it.  I begged my parents to let me take piano lessons, and they finally gave in.  We bought a used piano, and I took lessons for 8 years. Now I have found that I really enjoy studying voice.  God has given me a gift, and I must use it to His glory.  
       Like most Christians, I have strayed from the path of righteousness on more than one occasion.  But I have been brought out of the darkness and shown the way.  I've been through lonliness, bitterness, and more pain than one person should have to endure.  As it is said "Whatever doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger."  Oh how true that is. 
       I have tried to abandon music, and it never works.  I try to convince myself that somthing else will be just as enjoyable or more so.  Every time I find that I miss it.  Now more than ever I have found that God really is pulling in the direction of music.  When I am studying or performing music I feel so close to him.  I change my mind, and thus change my major and lose that closeness and find that I long for it.  This should tell me something.  It does.  So now I make a public cry out to the Lord....

                      
Here I am, Lord.  Send me!!! 
Here I am Lord
I, the Lord of sea and sky,
I have heard my people cry.
All who dweel in dark and sin,
My hand will save.
          
I who made the stars of night,
I will make their darkness bright.
Who will bear my light to them?
Whom shall I send?

          
CHORUS
          Here I am, Lord.  Is it I, Lord?
           I have heard you calling in the night.
           I will go, Lord, if you lead me.
           I will hold your people in my heart.

I, the Lord of snow and rain,
I have borned my people's pain.
I have wept for love of them.
They turn away.

I will break their hearts of stone,
Give them hearts for love alone.
I will speak my words for them.
Whom shall I send? 

I, the Lord of wind and flame,
I will send the poor and lame.
I will set a feast for them.
My hand will save. 

Finest bread I will provide,
'Til their hearts be satisfied.
I will give my life to them.
Whom shall I send?

        
CHORUS
        Here I am, Lord.  Is it I, Lord?
         I have heard you calling in the night.
         I will go, Lord, if you lead me. 
         I will hold your people in my heart. 

Dance as though no one can see you.
Sing as though no one can hear you.
         And do it all for His glory.
