438. Forth in Thy Name, O Lord

Text: Charles Wesley, 1707-1788
Music: John Hatton
Tune: DUKE STREET, Meter: LM

1.	Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go,
	my daily labor to pursue;
	thee, only thee, resolved to know
	in all I think or speak or do.

2.	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.

3.	Thee may I set at my right hand,
	whose eyes mine in-most substance see,
	and labor on at thy command,
	and offer all my works to thee.

4.	For thee delightfully employ
	what e'er thy bounteous grace hath given;
	and run my course with even joy,
	and closely walk with thee to heaven.
