Here I Am, Lord
"Here I Am, Lord", also known by its first line, "I, the Lord of sea and sky", is a Christian hymn written by the American composer of Catholic liturgical music Dan Schutte in 1981. Its words are based on Isaiah 6:8 and 1 Samuel 3. It is published by OCP Publications.
Schutte's hymn is sung also in many Protestant worship services and is found in more than 55 hymnals and missalettes.
In 2004 a survey conducted by the Tablet, an international Catholic magazine, reported "Here I Am, Lord" as readers' favorite. A poll conducted by the National Association of Pastoral Musicians found among members that it came in second among "songs that make a difference".
In 2017 AmericaMagazine.org ran an article detailing the impact this song has had on the spirituality of American Catholics.
