Darkness all around and evil ever before me

Daily I claim your mighty sword and shield

The Living Word the wellspring of grace and mercy

By this Light of truth even the fiercest enemy yields

I will rise and go wherever you lead or command

Every gospel mission begins on bended knee

Our sure hope the sacrifice of the Son of Man

Holy Spirit remove my scales first that I may see

Abide in me and fill me with your righteousness

Shape me for useful service with this ready reply

Even if I must seek out a blinded man from Tarsus

“Lord, here am I!”

“Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias. The Lord said to him in a vision, “Ananias.” And he said, “Here I am, Lord.” And the Lord said to him, “Rise and go to the street called Straight, and at the house of Judas look for a man of Tarsus named Saul, for behold, he is praying,” Acts 9:10-11 ESV
