Whom Shall I Send?

Part Two ~ Isaiah 6.1-10

‘Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying,

“Whom shall I send and who shall go for us?”

And I said, “Here I am, send me!’

The idea for this fun poem was taken from Isaiah 6:8 above - It mentions various members of our congregation by name, (they didn’t mind!) Why not try inserting one or two names from your congregation, or even alter one or two lines to make the poem fit those you know?

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Edith Corbett and Cathy Mills, they’re the one you need,

You’ll never hear them swearing, or lie, or show their greed,

They are both such GOOD souls, they never sin at all

They’ll both go for you Lord, when you call.

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Lord if you’ve got a job to do, choose Pat or Terry Gurr

They’re faithful and reliable… OR you could ask HIM Or HER

A’m nee good at anything, nee use whatso’ever

You need someone brainy, you need someone clever!

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Lord, if you want to ask somebody why not ask the clergy,

It’s THEIR job to go for you, and I’ve always got the ‘lurgy’

Aa’m all sniffles and all sneezes, diseases hold me bound.

They’re the things that aa would spread around.

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Lord if you want to send someone, Shirley Patterson would go

She works all night, she’s up all day, why not give HER more,

She’s always helping others, and she’s never ever bored,

She’s the one you’re really after, she will serve you Lord.

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Well there’s Cathy, and Julann; there’s Helen and there’s Joan

They’ve all so bloomin helpful and they never, ever moan,

Aa canna get me words out aa stutter all day long

So divvent call on me Lord aa’l only get it wrong

WHO WILL GO FOR ME, WHOM SHALL I SEND?

Aa know who you’re after, it’s the church wardens that should go

They’re the appointed people, and SPECIALISTS should go.

I know they’ve both got other jobs, but sometimes THEY are free.

Ask anyone you like Lord, but DIVVENT SEND ME!
