Here I Am Lord


Schutte, Daniel L., arr. Missel, Tammera and Krug, Jason W., From the Top Music

This lovely hymn was written by Dan Schutte for the ordination of a deacon, while he was studying at the Jesuit School of Theology.

Needless to say – he rose to the challenge, and this has become a favorite hymn of many.
