I'll Go Where You Want Me to Go
Words by Charles H. Gabriel

Isaiah 6:8
"Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send,
and who will go for us?  Then said I, Here am I; send me."

          It may not be on the mountain's height,
          Or over the stormy sea;
          It may not be at the battle's front
          My Lord will have need of me;
          But if by a still, small voice He calls
          To paths I do not know,
          I'll answer, dear Lord, with my hand in Thine,
          I'll go where You want me to go.

            Chorus
            I'll go where You want me to go, dear Lord,
            O'er mountain, or plain, or sea;
            I'll say what You want me to say, dear Lord,
            I'll be what You want me to be.

          Perhaps today there are loving words
          Which Jesus would have me to speak;
          There may be now, in the paths of sin,
          Som wand'rer whom I should seek.
          O Savior, if Thou will be my Guide,
          Tho' dark and rugged the way,
          My voice shall echo the message sweet,
          I'll say what You want me to say.

            Chorus
            I'll go where You want me to go, dear Lord,
            O'er mountain, or plain, or sea;
            I'll say what You want me to say, dear Lord,
            I'll be what You want me to be.

          There's surely somewhere in a lowly place
          In earth's harvest fields so wide,
          Where I may labor thro' life's short day
          For Jesus, the Crucified.
          So trusting my all unto Thy care,
          I know Thou lovest me!
          I'll do Thy will with a heart sincere,
          I'll be what You want me to be.

            Chorus
            I'll go where You want me to go, dear Lord,
            O'er mountain, or plain, or sea;
            I'll say what You want me to say, dear Lord,
            I'll be what You want me to be.
