HERE I AM
(Sylvia Merle Green)
The Hoppers (with Connie Hopper)
On that resurrection morning, when the redeemed are gath'ring in;
I'll be in that royal number, when they call my name.
When they all join in and sing, "Alleluia to the King!"
I'll cry with a joyful sound, "Lord, here I am."
chorus: Here I am, here I am!
I'm the one the Shepherd left the fold and found.
There were ninety and nine, but He left the fold to find
One little lost lamb, and here I am.
When old Gabriel blows the trumpet, and we rise up in the air,
In less time than a split second, we'll be changed from here to there;
Where there'll be no grief or pain, perfect peace and joy shall reign,
Home at last I shall proclaim, "Lord, here I am."
