6333. Step by Step (Ulmer)

1. When the shadows thickly gather,
Clouding all thy onward way,
Think not what shall be tomorrow;
Seek God’s help just for today.

Refrain
Step by step He leads me onward,
Step by step the way reveals;
But what in the future lieth,
In His mercy He conceals.

2. Should the coming days bring burdens,
Or be fraught with grief or care,
Trust Him in the hour of trial,
He will make thee strong to bear. [Refrain]

3. Daily strength He ever giveth,
For each day rich grace bestows;
And each morrow, as it dawneth,
Still His lovingkindness shows. [Refrain]

4. Then why should we shrink or falter
When the onward path looks dim,
Knowing light will never fail us
While we walk by faith with Him? [Refrain]
