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
