lyrics

INTRO
Don't wanna be weak and nervous
Lord let me speak with courage
Open my heart and help me love
So I'll be your willing servant
Thank you for peace and purpose
Prepare my feet for service
Loooooord, send me
Loooooord, send me

VERSE 1
Heavenly Father
I know I'm not the most likely creature to be a preacher
But I'm an eager believer ready to be a teacher for Jesus
And yes I'm reminded daily that I'm just an inadequate mess
And any righteousness that I claim is explained as filthy rags at best
Yes I'm from Oakland where it's colder than five degrees
Dying surrounded me and crying was privately and
I ain't always been in Christ
I remember foggy dim-lit nights, shaking dice, involved in lawlessness and strife
But now
Send me to preach hope to the masses
Send me like Moses floating in a basket
Send me like Saul on the road to Damascus
Send me as a gospel defender no matter how hostile the vineyard
So I can send 'em to you, the true doctor for the hospital of sinners
Send me into the music industry
To teach the Good News to the confused emcees
who choose to use offensive speech
Send me as dead but alive in Christ
A new creature, throwing two-piecers like Andre Ward on Friday nights

HOOK
Lord, I'm Ready! SEND ME!
To teach of your gospel that makes men free
Because of you, I have power!
To teach of your truth until the last hour
Lord let me be your instrument
Spreading sunshine throughout the land

VERSE 2
Now I can do all things through Christ Jesus who strengthens me
All things is possible
Read Acts 9 about Paul the Apostle
Who first persecuted Christians and tossed 'em in prison, it cost him his vision
But when the scales fell from his eyes and he became alive to walk with The Risen
So I'm off on a mission
But I ain't skipping on bricks to the Land of Oz
He gave me a new form, I wasn't reborn to be a luke warm man of God
And I don't want to be mistaken for a praying pacifist on the battlefield
Where Satan's activists tactics is pagan practices with mass appeal
The Master's will is my destiny
He resurrected me to let the message speak
To the intellect and the skeptics who reject His majestic pedigree
See my charge is keep marching forward
His target: these heart disorders
Bring you out of the darkness to a house made without rock and mortar
And you might have difficulty believing he sent Despicable Me
Because I treated Him like a typical thief
But I'm free because of what He did on a tree
I'm digging my cleats deep in, seeking men to defend
The Gospel of Christ until He sends in His legions

HOOK
Lord, I'm Ready! SEND ME!
To teach of your gospel that makes men free
Because of you, I have power!
To teach of your truth until the last hour
Lord let me be your instrument
Spreading sunshine throughout the land

BRIDGE
Lord let me be your instrument
Spreading sunshine across the land
Let the world see your works in me
Let me live the best way I can
