Forth in thy Name, O Lord, I go

My daily labor to pursue;

Thee, only thee, resolved to know

In all I think, or speak, or do.

The task thy wisdom hath assigned,

O let me cheerfully fulfill;

In all my works thy presence find,

And prove thy good and perfect will.

Thee may I set at my right hand,

Whose eyes my most substance see;

And labor on at they command,

And offer all my works to thee.

Give me to bear they easy yoke,

And every moment watch and pray;

And still to things eternal look,

And hasten to thy glorious day.

Fain would I still for thee employ

What’er they bounteous grace hath given,

Would run my course with even joy,

And closely walk with thee to heaven.  Amen

Charles Wesley
