Send Me On My Way

I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
"Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?"
Then I said, "Here am I! Send me."
~ Isaiah 6:8 (NKJV)

In the same way the Spirit also helps us in our weakness; for we do not know what prayers to offer nor in what way to offer them. But the Spirit Himself pleads for us in yearnings that can find no words ...
~ Romans 8:26 (WNT)


Send Me On My Way


Along the way of my journey toward Heaven, my prayers are much like this song—my words to God come out in pieces that sound like nonsense of which only the Spirit might make sense.

But underlying the music to which I often dance is a clear message to the One Who directs my life: "Here am I! Send me on my way. I go wherever You say with joy."

(With thanks to Wendy for turning me on to this song. :D)




send me on my way
by rusted root

on my way
on my way
on my way
on my way

I would like to reach out my hands
I may see you, I may tell you to run
you know what they say about the young
well pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
you know what they say about the young

(2x)
I would like to hold my little hand
how we will run we will
how we will cry

(7x) send me on my way (on my way)

I would like to reach out my hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
you know what they say about the young
well pick me up with golden hand
I may see you, I may tell you to run
you know what they say about the young
well

(2x)
I would like to hold my little hand
how we will run away we will
how we will crawl away
send me on my way, on my way

  1. Thanks for the song, Anne -- a new one for me. And "our words come out in pieces" -- that's beautiful, and profound.

  3. I hadn't heard that before either. It's almost the lament of my soul at this point. It makes me wonder how Jesus remained so patient while waiting all his life to begin his ministry. I suppose I should sleep as he did that night on the boat and let the Lord weather the storm for me. He'll wake me when it's time.

  4. Glynn, if the poet finds a place to use that line you have my blessing to do so.

    Denise, I can just picture you and I dancing this together! ;D

    T. Anne, you've no idea how often I've contemplated how hard it must have been for Jesus to spend those many years on Earth when He knew the glory of Heaven.

  5. Wendy, this song has added to the life of my entire household. Of course, you know your stats are going to drop now that we can hear it on my blog instead of heading to yours! Then again, we enjoy the rest of your playlist, so I'm guessing we'll still have your page open a while when we visit. ;D
