1 Forth in your name, O Lord, I go,
my daily labor to pursue,
you only, Lord, resolved to know
in all I think or speak or do.
2 The task your wisdom has assigned
here let me cheerfully fulfill;
in all my work your presence find,
and prove your good and perfect will.
3 You may I set at my right hand,
whose eyes my inmost secrets view,
and labor on at your command
and offer all my work to you.
4 Help me to bear your easy yoke,
in ev'ry moment watch and pray,
and still to things eternal look
and hasten to that glorious day.
5 Then with delight may I employ
all that your bounteous grace has given,
and run my earthly course with joy,
and closely walk with you in heaven.
