I, the Lord of sea and sky 'Here I am Lord'
The words of this song begin with proclamation in the verses; this is answered in the refrain by the singer’s commitment to service. This is reflected in the tune. The melody for the verses has a vigorous movement to proclaim the work of God in creation, his continuing love for that creation, and his call for service. This is answered in the repeated refrain where in a quieter, humbler melody the believer responds in self-dedication. The refrain walks a knife-edge between humility and sentimentality, and singers need to be aware of this spiritual danger. Both words and music are by the American Jesuit musician Daniel L Schutte, who has served both on college campuses and in parish ministry.
