“So Send I You”

So send I you to labor unrewarded,
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing,
So send I you to toil for me alone.

So send I you – to loneliness and longing,
With heart a-hungering for the loved and known;
Forsaking home and kindred, friend and dear one,
So send I you  – to know my love alone.

So send I you – to leave your life’s ambitions,
To die to dear desire, self-will resign,
To labor long and love where men revile you,
So send I you – to lose your life in mine.

Edith Margaret Clarkson was born this date 6/8/1915 at Melville, Saskatchewan, Canada.  She wrote “So Send I You” and God of Creation, All-Powerful.  She died 3/17/2008 in Toronto. “So Send I You” has been called the greatest missionary hymn of the twentieth century.
