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.


Charles Wesley, Hymns and Sacred Poems (1749)
