Thank you from Desmond Murray Family
Life Stories | Posted on June 26, 2017
Thank you for the outpouring of your love and support. The family—our mom, Desmond, Walter, Dave, Yvonne and Neil—of Pastor Hartwell Murray is deeply touched and moved. We thank you.
As we close out this historic week in the life of our family, we leave you with our dad's favorite hymn, and hope it ministers to your soul as it did for our father. We love you all. You are also welcome to view our celebration of his life.
His burial is merely a prelude—a seed planted—for resurrection and legacy. We remain strong and continue on with blessed assurance.
So Send I You
So send I you to labor unrewarded,
To serve unpaid, unloved, unsought, unknown,
To bear rebuke, to suffer scorn and scoffing-
So send I you to toil for Me alone.
So send I you to bind the bruised and broken,
O’er wand’ring souls to work, to weep, to wake,
To bear the burdens of a world aweary-
So send I you to suffer for My sake.
So send I you to loneliness and longing,
With heart ahung’ring for the loved and known,
Forsaking home and kindred, friend and dear one-
So send I you to know My love alone.
So send I you to leave your life’s ambition,
To die to dear desire, self-will resign,
To labor long, and love where men revile you-
So send I you to lose your life in Mine.
So send I you to hearts made hard by hatred,
To eyes made blind because they will not see,
To spend, tho’ it be blood, to spend and spare not-
So send I you to taste of Calvary.
