940. Forth in your name, O Lord, I go

Author: Charles Wesley 1707-88

Forth in your name, O Lord, I go
my daily labour to pursue;
you, Lord, alone I choose to know
in all I think or speak or do.

2. The task your wisdom has assigned
here let me cheerfully fulfil;
in all my work your presence find
and prove your good and perfect will.

3. You would I set at my right hand
whose eyes my inmost secrets view;
and labour on at your command
and offer all my work to you.

4. Help me to bear your easy yoke
and every moment watch and pray;
and still to things eternal look
and hasten to that glorious day.

5. Gladly for you may I employ
all that your generous grace has given;
and run my course with constant joy
and closely walk with you to heaven.
