Day by day

Day by day and with each pass-ing mo-ment,

Strength I find to meet my tri-als here;

Trust-ing in my Fath-er's wise bes-tow-ment,

I've no cause for wor-ry or for fear.

He whose heart is kind be-yond all meas-ure,

Gives un-to each day what He deems best,

Lov-ing-ly, its part of pain and pleas-ure,

Ming-ling toil with pe-ace a-n-d 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 thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,

This the pledge to me He made.

Help me then in every tribulation

So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,

That I lose not faith's sweet consolation

Offered me within Thy 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,

'Til I reach the promised land.
