1 Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labor to pursue.
Thee, only Thee, resolv’d to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do.
The task Thy wisdom hath assign’d,
Oh, let me cheerfully fulfill;
In all my works Thy presence find,
And prove Thy good and perfect will.
2 Thee may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
And labor on at Thy command,
And offer all my works to Thee.
For Thee delightfully employ
Whate’er Thy bounteous grace hath giv’n;
And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with Thee to heav’n.
