1 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.
2 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 Pow'r;
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.
3 Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith's sweet consolation
Offered me within your holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Ever to take, as from a father's hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
