Day By Day

Here's from my all-time favorite hymn!

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 it's 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 Pow'r.  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, till I reach the promised land.
