Day by day

Day by day and with each passing moment,

Strength I find to meet my trials here.

Trusting in my Father’s wise bestowment,

I’ve no cause for worry or for fear

He whose heart is kind beyond all measure

Gives unto each day what He deems best.

Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,

Mingling toil with peace and rest.

 

Every day the Lord himself is near me

With a special mercy for each hour.

All my cares he fain would bear, and cheer me,

He whose name is Counselor and Power.

The protection of his child and treasure

Is a charge that on himself he laid;

“As your days, your strength shall be in measure”

This the pledge to me he made.

 

Help me then in every tribulation

So to trust your promises O Lord,

That I lose not faith sweet consolation

Offered me within your holy Word.

Help me Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,

E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,

One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,

Till I reach the promised land.
