11 Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.

     12 For we commend not ourselves again unto you, but give you occasion to glory on our behalf, that ye may have somewhat to answer them which glory in appearance, and not in heart. 13 For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God: or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. 14 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose again.

     16 Wherefore henceforth know we no man after the flesh: yea, though we have known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no more. 17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.(KJV)

1. Hark! the voice of Jesus crying, 
“Who will go and work today? 
Fields are white and harvests waiting, 
Who will bear the sheave away?” 
Loud and long the Master calleth, 
Rich reward He offers thee; 
Who will answer, gladly saying, 
“Here am I, send me, send me”? 

2. If you cannot speak like angels, 
If you cannot preach like Paul, 
You can tell the love of Jesus, 
You can say He died for all. 
If you cannot rouse the wicked 
With the Judgement’s dread alarms, 
You can lead the little children 
To the Savior’s waiting arms. 

3 If you cannot be a watchman, 
Standing high on Zion’s wall, 
Pointing out the path to heaven, 
Offering life and peace to all, 
With your prayers and with your bounties 
You can do what God demands; 
You can be like faithful Aaron, 
Holding up the prophet’s hands. 

4. Let none hear you idly saying, 
“There is nothing I can do,” 
While the souls of men are dying 
And the Master calls for you. 
Take the task He gives you gladly, 
Let His work your pleasure be; 
Answer quickly when He calleth, 
“Here am I, send me, send me!”
