   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 inmost substance see,
      And labor on at Thy command,
      And offer all my works to 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.

Note: we have included a fourth verse that was not in the 1993 WCG hymnal, but was part
of Wesley's original words.
