Daily Prayer: Morning

7. Forth in thy Name, O Lord, I go

L.M.

Pixham:

Horatio Parker, 1901

Charles Wesley, 1749

Forth in thy Name, O Lord, I go

My daily labour to pursue;

Thee, only thee, resolved to know,

In all I think, or speak, or do.

The task thy wisdom hath assigned,

O let me cheerfully fulfill;

In all my works thy presence find,

And prove thy good and perfect will.

Thee may I set at my right hand,

Whose eyes my inmost substance see:

And labour on at thy command,

And offer all my works to thee.

Give me to bear thy easy yoke,

And every moment watch and pray;

And still to things eternal look,

And hasten to thy glorious Day.

Fain would I still for thee employ

Whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given,

Would run my course with even joy

And closely walk with thee to heaven.

Amen.
