Hymn 004 - Forth in Thy Name, O Lord I go
Walk before me, and thou perfect.
- mf 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 fulfil,
In all my works Thy presence find,
And prove Thy acceptable will.
- Preserve me from my calling's snare
And hide my simple heart above,
Above the thorns of choking care
The gilded baits of worldly love
- cr 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.
- mf 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.
- f For Thee delightfully employ
Whate'er Thy bounteous grace hath giv'n,
And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with Thee to heaven.
