Daniel L Schutte (b. 1947) is an American composer of Catholic liturgical music and a contemporary Christian songwriter best known for composing the hymn Here I Am, Lord (1981). Grew up in Elm Grove, Wisconsin and graduated from Marquette University High School before entering the Jesuits.

Schutte was one of the founding members of the St. Louis Jesuits who popularized a contemporary style of church music set to biblical and other religious texts sung in English as a result of the liturgical reforms initiated by Vatican II. He released nine CDs with the St. Louis Jesuits and a 30 year anniversary collection in 2005. Other members of the St. Louis Jesuits were Bob Dufford, Roc O'Connor, John Foley and Tim Manion. He left the Jesuit order in 1986.

Schutte presently is Composer-in-Residence at the University of San Francisco.
