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.
