1 Forth in your name, O Lord, I go
my daily labour to pursue;
you, Lord, alone I long 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 I would 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 earthly course with joy,
and closely walk with you to heaven.
