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 Ev'ry 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 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 ev'ry 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.


1 Oh mi Dios, yo encuentro cada día
tu poder en todo sinsabor;
por la fe en tu sabiduría
libre soy de penas y temor.
Tu bondad, Señor, es infinita,
tú me das aquello que es mejor;
por tu amor alívianse mis cuitas
y hallo paz en el dolor.

2 Cerca está tu brazo cada día
y por él recibo tu favor,
¡oh Señor, mi alma en ti confía,
eres tú mi gran Consolador!
Protección prometes a tus *hijos
porque son tesoro para ti;
hallo en ti constante regocijo,
Padre, sé que tú, velas por mí.

3 Tu poder me ayuda cada día
a vencer en la tribulación;
tengo fe, pues tu promesa es mía;
gozaré de tu consolación.
Si el afán y la aflicción me llegan,
estará tu mano junto a mí.
Y después, en la postrera siega,
moraré ya junto a ti.

Caroline W. Sandell Berg (b. Froderyd, Sweden, 1832; d. Stockholm, Sweden, 1903), is better known as Lina Sandell, the "Fanny Crosby of Sweden." "Lina" Wilhelmina Sandell Berg was the daughter of a Lutheran pastor to whom she was very close; she wrote hymns partly to cope with the fact that she witnessed his tragic death by drowning. Many of her 650 hymns were used in the revival services of Carl O. Rosenius, and a number of them gained popularity particularly because of the musical settings written by gospel singer Oskar Ahnfelt. Jenny Lind, the famous Swedish soprano, underwrote the cost of publishing a collection of Ahnfelt's music, Andeliga Sänger (1850), which consisted mainly of Berg's hymn texts.
