638. Forth in Your Name, O Lord, I Go

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 us cheerfully fulfill,
in all my work your presence find
and prove your good and perfect will.

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

4 Then with delight may we employ
all that your bounteous grace has giv'n,
and run my earthly course with joy,
and closely walk with you to heav'n.
