An original hymn about the Savior in the pre-mortal existence. Text by Mark Fotheringham below.

VERSE 1
Before creation had begun, the Father had a plan
To bless His children with the joy reserved for righteous man.
To bless with bodies and with laws to test their agency,
To prove through trial in faded light, through all adversity,
And show the strength they could achieve if they would choose the right,
The plan would center on the One, Beloved in His sight.

"Here am I. Send me," He said, "And I will do Thy will.
"Though dark and lonesome is the path, I'll go for good or ill."
He trusted that His Father's love, would always with Him be.
To guide Him through the darkest hour. "Here am I. Send me."

VERSE 2
When all the children of our God who'd one day come to earth
Were told they could become like God by miracle of birth
And following the Spirit's lead, a shout of joy was raised.
The love of God was manifest. Upon their God they gazed.
He said that One would need to go to suffer for them all,
Atoning for their sins, He'd have to drink the cup of gall.

"Here am I. Send me," He said, "And I will do Thy will.
"Though dark and lonesome is the path, I'll go for good or ill."
He trusted that His Father's love, would always with Him be.
To guide Him through the darkest hour. "Here am I. Send me."

VERSE 3
Another thought was given there by one with pleasing voice,
Who sought God's glory and His pow'r, denying gifts of choice.
"I'll save them all," he lied in spite of all from Father heard
About the need to sacrifice and learn to love His Word.
"Whom shall I send?" the Father asked. "How shall these souls be won?"
The eldest of our brothers stood and said, "Thy will be done."

"Here am I. Send me," He said, "And I will do Thy will.
"Though dark and lonesome is the path, I'll go for good or ill."
He trusted that His Father's love, would always with Him be.
To guide Him through the darkest hour. "Here am I. Send me."

VERSE 4
I wonder if He understood the task before His face,
To reconcile perfection to a weak and troubled race,
To help all men return to God by suff'ring for their sin
And taking on all pain and grief, their wand'ring souls to win.
Oh yes, I think He knew full well the depth of what would come.
His love and faith were deeper still for each and every one.

"Here am I. Send me," He said, "And I will do Thy will.
"Though dark and lonesome is the path, I'll go for good or ill."
He trusted in His Father's love, e'en in Gethsemane.
Alone He'd face His darkest hour. "Here am I. Send me."
