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 gladly bears and cheers 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.

3 Help me then in every tribulation
so to trust Your 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,
e'er to take, as from a father’s hand,
one by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
till I reach the promised land.
