1 Another day has come and gone;
What have I done to please You?
Have I realized Your perfect plan,
Or have I lived my own?
Would I be glad for all to see
My written record, the whole story,
Or would I long to wipe the details away?

2 Another day has come and gone;
What have I done to praise You?
Have You been glorified by me,
Or have I brought You shame?
Because I lived another day,
Does someone, somewhere, now love You more,
Or has my influence been set for the wrong?

3 Another day has come and gone;
What have I done to serve You?
Have I held high Your dearest cause,
Or have I let it down?
Have I abandoned self today,
And lived for You, Lord, in ev’ry way,
Or have I lived, and loved, and given for me?

4 Another day has come and gone;
How have I sped Your coming?
Have I become more like my Lord,
Or have I lost my flame?
Oh help me, Lord, live ev’ry day,
So when each ends, I can truly say:
"Yes, I have lived for my dear Jesus today."
