The Call of Jeremiah

when the people of jerusalem went into exile
now the word of the LORD came to me saying

before i formed you in the womb
i knew you and before you were born
i consecrated you i appointed you
ah sovereign LORD!
alas i do not know how to speak
i am only a youth
do not say 'i am only a youth'
for to all to whom i send you you shall go
and whatever i command you you shall speak
do not be afraid of them
for i am with you
