lHymns of the Living Church
Forth in Thy Name, O Lord, I Go
Thee, on - ly Thee, re-solved to know, In all I think, or speak, or do. A-men.
The task Thy wisdom hath assigned
O let me cheerfully fulfil;
Whose eyes mine inmost substance see,
And offer all my works to Thce.
And every moment watch and pray;
Whate'er Thy bounteous grace hath given,
Through sleep and dark-ness safe-ly brought, Restored to life, and power, and thought. A-men.
For Thy mer- cies, Lord, are sure; Thy com -pas-sion doth en- dure. A-men.
As the morning light returns,
Redeem thy misspent time that's past,
5 Lord, I my vows to Thee renew; Scatter my sins as morning dew; Guard my first springs of thought and will, And with Thyself my spirit fill.
6 Direct, control, suggest, this day, All I design, or do, or say; That all my powers, with all their might, In Thy sole glory may unite.
7 Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow; Praise Him, all creatures here below; Praise Him above, ye heavenly host; Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Amen.
