Jesus I pray that you open the door
Send me to reach the lost and the poor
The broken hearted soul that needs you
Only Your salvation will do

Many doors have been closed in my face
Give me the strength to run the race
Send me to some poor lost soul
To help them reach that heavenly goal

You send servants to preach the truth
Tell others about Abraham, Moses and Ruth
How you rewarded their faith and trust
They live on though their bodies are dust

The laborers are few You have said
Send me to the spiritually dead
Pull back the scales from their eyes
Listen, O Lord, to our cries

Time I know is getting short
Send me to preach and to exhort
Show others the path to true life
Put an end to their conflicts and strife

Surely the last days are here
Maybe today You will appear
To rescue Your children from all harm
Let me, O Lord, sound the alarm

Satan tries to keep us off the straight path
Deliver us, O God, from his wrath
When the perfect time draws nigh
Come, O Lord, and split the sky

Until that time is here, O Lord I pray
Open wide a door today
To tell someone about You
With Your help, this I can do
