Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546, or you can click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure site.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team,

456. Forth in Your Name, O Lord, I Go

1 Forth in your name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labor to pursue,
Determined only you to know
In all I think or speak or do.

2 Oh, let me cheerfully fulfill
The task your wisdom has assigned
And do your good and perfect will -
In all my works your presence find!

3 May I find you at my right hand;
Your eyes see truly what I do.
I labor on at your command
And offer all my works to you.

4 Give me to bear your easy yoke
And ev'ry moment watch and pray
And still to things eternal look
And hasten to your glorious day.

5 For you I joyously employ
Whatever you in grace have giv'n;
I run my daily course with joy
And closely walk with you to heav'n.
