L.M.

1
Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I’d go,
My daily labour to pursue;
Thee, only Thee, resolved to know,
In all I think, or speak, or do.

2
The task Thy wisdom has assigned
O let me cheerfully fulfil;
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 my inmost substance see,
And labour on at Thy command,
My one desire to follow Thee.

4
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.

5
For Thee delightfully employ
Whate’er Thy bounteous grace hath given,
And run my course with even joy,
And closely walk with Thee to heaven.
