Lord, Here I Am
On the eve of moving to Cambridge and to the Dominican Novitiate, I turn again to his song (which is based on the psalms) that inspired me then to offer myself to God as a Preacher and continues to inspire me today...
I have tried all morning to upload the presentation or to convert it into another format (Flash or Real) but have failed... I've also tried to upload just the sound clip but there are so many copyright issues that it's just too complicated for me to sort that out now! So, here's the words albeit without the wonderful music!
"Lord, here I am... Lord, here I am.
Lord, I come to do Your will.
Here I am, here I am. Here I am, Lord.
Sacrifice and offering, you do not ask from me.
Only ears to hear Your Word.
Lord, here I am!
Your commands are in the scroll you've written in my heart.
How I love to do Your will.
Your law's in my heart.
Lord, here I am... Lord, here I am.
Lord I come to do Your will.
Here I am, my Lord. Here I am! Here I am, my Lord."
There will be another post tomorrow morning before I set off for Blackfriars Cambridge (after Confession and Mass!).
May Our Lady of Guadalupe and St Dominic walk with me in my every journey.
