Hi Handmaid4God,

I don't know where to find the music for this particular song online. Are you looking for simple guitar chords, or something more?

Here is a music book (or fake book) that has this hymn listed as being included:

I will keep looking. I often look online for guitar chords, but I can't seem to find this song anywhere.

Thank you for bringing it to my attention! It is a great quote by Livingstone!

I was hoping to find the music notes (at least the melody line) for just singing the hymn. The first time I ever heard it was in a sermon by Bro. Keith Daniel. Here are the words for the song;

Oh Lord, since Thou hast died, to give Thyself for me,
no sacrifice could be to great for me to make for Thee.

Chorus- Lord, send me anywhere, only go with me. Lay any burden on me, only sustain me. sever any tie, save the tie that binds me to Thy heart. Lord Jesus, my King, I consecrate my life Lord, to Thee.

I only have one life to live and that will soon be
past. I want my life to count for Christ, what's done
for Him will last. So (Chorus)

I follow Thee, my Lord, and glory in Thy cross. I
gladly leave the world behind and count all gain as
loss. But (Chorus)

 Re: Great Songs, Great Lyrics

This is one of the most beautiful I have found of late:

In Christ alone, my hope is found

He is my light, my strength, my song

This cornerstone, this solid ground

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm

What heights of love, what depths of peace

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease

My comforter, my all-in-all

Here in the love of Christ I stand

There in the ground His body lay

Light of the world by darkness slain

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again
And as He stands in victory

Sin's curse has lost its grip on me
For I am His and He is mine

Bought with the precious blood of Christ

No guilt in life, no fear in death
This is the power of Christ in me

From life's first cry to final breath

Jesus commands my destiny

No power of hell, no scheme of man

Can ever pluck me from His hand
Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
Till He returns or calls me home

Here in the power of Christ I'll stand
Here in the power of Christ I'll stand

I also really like David Livingstone's "Send me Anywhere, Only go with me"... BTW, does anyone have/know where I could find the music/notes for this hymn? Thank you, and God bless...

Hi Handmaid4God,

The hymnbook, Hymns of Grace and Glory, has that hymn with the music in's available at the following link and also from the publisher...

Hope this helps!

I know "alternative" worship probably won't have much of an audience here but I really like a group of musicians called Enter the Worship Circle. Each album has a different group of musicians and it's sounds different from anything I've ever heard. And they ALWAYS use scripture.

My favorite song is "How Sweet"


How sweet do your words go down? Sweeter than honey, in my mouth.

You love me, I understand. Open my heart, open my hands.

I'm tasting all that you say. Your words are the sugar in my pain.

After he graduated from Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, UK, Joseph Scriven became engaged. In 1845, his fiancée drowned the night before their wedding. Brokenhearted and heavily influenced by the Plymouth Brethren, Joseph Scriven left his family and immigrated to Canada. There, he fell in love again. However, this young woman died of pneumonia before they married. After these experiences, Scriven never married.

In 1855, he received word that his mother was gravely ill. He penned a poem for her and sent it to Ireland. Years later, an American attorney, Charles Converse, took the poem and set it to music. It became a widely popular hymn around the world.

What a Friend we have in Jesus
(Pray Without Ceasing)
by Joseph M. Scriven

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
all our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
everything to God in prayer.

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful
who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden,
cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Saviour, still our refuge,
take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield you;
you will find a solace there.

Blessed Saviour, Thou hast promised
Thou wilt all our burdens bear
May we ever, Lord, be bringing
all to Thee in earnest prayer.
Soon in glory bright unclouded
there will be no need for prayer,
Rapture, praise and endless worship
will be our sweet portion there.

by Keith Green

The very things I hate,
I end up doing,
The things I want to do,
I just don't do.
Lord it seems so sad,
why am I so bad?
When in my heart
I only want to be like you.

The very ones I love
I end up hurting,
The ones I want to help
I pass right by.
Now I want to be,
finally set free
The grace you've shown,
the love I've known,
Please let it shine through me.

I want to love them,
the way you do,
I want to serve them,
by serving you.

Lord how I know your tender heart must be broken,
By all those unkept promises I've made.

The question still prevails,
please take away the veil,
About how you forgive,
and still you live
inside when I fail.

I want to love them,
the way you do,
I want to serve them,
by serving you.
I want to be like you;
Jesus I do.

I want to love them,
the way you do,
I want to serve them,
by serving you.

We sang this song in our meeting this morning. I have always been moved by its words!

English versification by Eleanor Hull

Be thou my vision, O Lord of my heart,
Be all else naught to me, save that thou art;
Thou my best thought in the day and the night,
Both waking and sleeping, thy presence my light.

Be thou my wisdom, be thou my true word,
Be thou ever with me, and I with thee Lord;
Be thou my great Father, and I thy true son;
Be thou in me dwelling, and I with thee one.

Be thou my breastplate, my sword for the fight;
Be thou my whole armour, be thou my true might;
Be thou my soul's shelter, be thou my strong tower:
O raise thou me heavenward, great Power of my power.

Riches I heed not, nor man's empty praise:
Be thou mine inheritance now and always;
Be thou and thou only the first in my heart;
O Sovereign of Heaven, my treasure thou art.

High King of Heaven, thou Heaven's bright sun,
O grant me its joys after victory is won!;
Great heart of my own heart, whatever befall,
Still be my vision, O Ruler of all.

This song has been going through my head over and over today. Among others there are versions by Selah and Shane&Shane on youtube. So beautiful!

Before The Throne Of God Above

Before the throne of God above
I have a strong and perfect plea.
A great high Priest whose Name is Love
Who ever lives and pleads for me.
My name is graven on His hands,
My name is written on His heart.
I know that while in heaven He stands
No tongue can bid me thence depart.

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within,
Upward I look and see Him there
Who made an end of all my sin.
Because the sinless Savior died
My sinful soul is counted free.
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me.

Behold Him there the risen Lamb,
My perfect spotless righteousness,
The great unchangeable I AM,
King of glory and of grace,
One in Himself I cannot die.
My soul is purchased by His blood,
My life is hid with Christ on high,
With Christ my Savior and my God!

Mary Jane, I thought of this song when I read your post about taking some time off from the SermonIndex forums. I hope that it encourages you. We have been blessed by your posts.

by Twila Paris

There’s a great, broad road, through the meadow,
And many travel there,
But I have a gentle Shepherd,
I would follow anywhere,
Up a narrow path, Through the mountains,
To the valley far below,
To be ever in His presence,
Where He leads me I will go.

And there are many wondrous voices,
Day and night they fill the air,
But there is one so small and quiet,
I would know it anywhere,
In the city or in the wilderness,
There’s a ringing crystal clear,
And to be ever close beside Him,
When He calls me I will hear.

Where He leads me, I will follow,
When He calls me I will hear.

There is a great, broad road to nowhere,
And so many travel there,
But I have a gentle Shepherd,
I would follow anywhere,
Though the journey take me far away,
From the place I call my home,
To be ever in His presence,
Where He leads me I will go.
