529. Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go

1 Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go,
my daily labour to pursue;
thee, only thee, resolved to know
in all I think or speak or do.

2 The task thy wisdom hath assigned,
oh, let me cheerfully fulfil;
in all my works thy presence find,
and prove thy good and perfect will.

3 Thee may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes mine in-most substance see,
and labour on at thy command,
and offer all my works to thee.

4 Give me to bear thy easy yoke,
and every moment watch and pray,
and still to things eternal look,
and hasten to thy glorious day.

5 For thee delightfully employ
whate'er thy bounteous grace has given;
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heaven.
