Lord, I Go Forth in Your Name

Inspired by
Forth in thy name, O Lord, I go



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.

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 mine inmost substance see,
and labor 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.

For thee delightfully employ
whate'er thy bounteous grace hath given;
and run my course with even joy,
and closely walk with thee to heav'n.

Words: Charles Wesley, 1749
Music: Song 34 (Angels' Song), Pixham, Oxford, Warrington, Mozart

"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."

There is such power and wisdom in this prayer.
I think it is a good reminder for us, that we are
but passing through. Thanks for posting this. Blessings.
