SEND ME
(Lyrics by Lecrae)

Send me I’ll go,
Send me I’ll go,
Send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

I seen it with my own two,
there’s no way i can show you
a perfectly poverty stricken people with no view.
And i bet you can’t believe this,
they never heard of jesus.
Heard of young buck, lil wayne, and young jeezy.

No one’s signing up to go on missions this summer.
Rather sit at home and watch Xzibit pimping a hummer

while a nine year old is shot down.
No one’s screaming ‘stop now!’
no bridge illustrations for criminals who on lock down.

People deep in africa
looking for an answer bra’.
In china man,
they’re dying man,
until they know who died for sins.
So look what grace did.
Not for us to stay hid

inside our comfort zones
at home in mama’s basement.

Get out on the grind y’all.
Ain’t no better time dawg.
I know y’all read the great commission.
Let me just remind y’all:
make disciples of the nations.
Teach em to obey the Lord.
Hate to never lead someone to Christ before I face the Lord.

Send me I’ll go,
Send me I’ll go,
Send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

Hey! After, 1,000 years in the west and the church is
get’n bigger daily without understanding worship. (say what?)

Some regenerated but a lot ain’t saved.
You walk outside and be surprised cuz the block ain’t changed.
And the numbers, they be getting em.

Something just ain’t hit’n them.
America ain’t christian they just practicing a ritual.

That’s why we should be missional.
Hey, what you think i’m spit’n for?
The united states is dying
and in the east it’s looking pitiful.

Some places if they catch you
they’ll arrest you.
They’ll serve you,
but they still need the word too.
The gospel should be heard too.
We claim we ain’t ashamed,
but we ain’t hit the block up.
Were in our christian bubble,
while our brotha’s get’n locked up.
Lord i wanna stock up,
pack a bag and walk up
in a country where sharing my faith may get me shot up
anywhere i go, whether my city or far abroad,
i just wanna show them Jesus Christ the risen holy God.

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!
(repeat x4)

I know they’re dying in the streets over in the middle east.
Some kids seeking peace
others hold’n up a piece.
If the violence doesn’t cease,
then at least the deceased
might know Jesus as their savior as their bodies hit the streets.
And i know this is a graphic view.
And i pray that it’s attack’n you.
Attracting you to act and do
what you see in the back of Luke

Mathew twenty-four and fourteen.
We should read it twice
before we think that life is just about us
being free in Christ!
Look dawg! Life is more than church, work, and football!
What if you were dead in sin and christians overlooked y’all!
This is why we leave the couch
and leave the comforts of our house
to show a dying world a God they’ll probably never read about.

The great commission says make disciples of all nations.
Have we even made them in our own nation?
Come on Christians!
Missions exist because worship doesn’t.
People don’t worship the God who made them.
We’re ambassadors.
Let’s go!

Send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
send me I’ll go,
lemme go lemme go!

(This song comes from the album After the Music Stops. Go get about 116 of that to give to your friends, family, co-workers, neighbours, waiters, flight attendants, letter carriers, etc.)
