"Hear I am Send Me"

About a year ago, I was able to see the band Delirious? (yes, that question mark is part of the band’s name) perform at New Jersey’s Meadow Lands. The band’s live songs are so incredibly energetic and powerful. And that includes the live version of "Hear I am Send Me" (I posted the lyrics below). You can listen to "Hear I am Send Me" (as well as all of the rest of their albums) for free at the Delirious? website. Go to the Delirious? website, select "Now is the Time" (all the way on the right of the webpage), and listen to the first track "Hear I am Send Me." It’s good stuff.

Lyrics to "Hear I am Send Me":

Here I am send me, Here I am send me,
There’s nothing in my hands,
But here I am send me.

Show me a vision like Isaiah saw,
Where the angel touched his lips and he sinned no more.
Let me hear your voice saying "Who shall I send?"
I’ll say send me Lord, I’ll follow you to the end.

Show me a vision like Ezekiel saw,
An army of light from a valley of bones.
Breathe life into these lungs of mine,
So I can scream and shout of your love divine.

Search light, burns bright, floods my eyes,
Invade me, serenade me, I’m giving back my life.

Here I am send me, Here I am send me,
There’s nothing in my hands,
But here I am send me.

I’m in Jacobs dream seeing heavens gate,
Let me climb all night on my ladder of faith.
Wrestle with the angel till my body is weak,
Dislocate my bones for it’s you that I seek.

Show me the light Paul apostle saw,
When he fell to the dust and he could see no more,
Open my eyes, open my eyes,
Open my eyes, open my eyes.

I’m frightened what you’ll find,
When you open up my heart, I’m walking in the light,
Cos it’s light that changes the atmosphere,
So touch these lips that criticise,
And put a song in my mouth that opens our eyes.

Seeing Delirious? on stage was a lot of fun. They are a top-notch rock band. So, if they come around anywhere near you, then try and go catch the show. I was surprised when I first learned that Delirious? was performing in my area. Most popular Christian bands do not tour near the New York City area. Vicky Beeching and Rebecca St. James opened for Delirious?. Least to say, that show was an amazing night of music and fellowship. :)
