Reply to "Isaiah 6: Holy, Holy, Holy... and Send Me! Lessons and Ideas"

Michael W. Smith's mega-hit, "Open the Eyes of My Heart, Lord" (written by Paul Balouche) uses the words of Isaiah 6 as it's lyrics. Instead of the "Seraphim" singing, the song imagines US singing.  Notably, this passage includes the question, "Whom Shall I Send?" and Isaiah responds, "Send Me!"

Key lyrics pasted below.

Note: I've posted an "At-Home Lesson" for families and youth that uses this video.

My favorite version of the song is sung by DeAngelo Gardner. 

Open the eyes of my heart, Lord
Open the eyes of my heart
I want to see You
I want to see You
To see You high and lifted up
Shinin' in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy
To see You high and lifted up
Shinin' in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy
To see You high and lifted up
Shinin' in the light of Your glory
Pour out Your power and love
As we sing holy, holy, holy
Holy, holy, holy
We cry holy, holy, holy
You are holy, holy, holy
I want to see you
