1 Day by day I trust my guiding
To the Shepherd of my soul,
Day by day I look for pardon
To the One who made me whole;
Day by day I ask for wisdom
From the Fount of truth and light,
Day by day my joy grows greater
As I feel His presence bright.

Glory and grace each day;
Glory and grace for aye;
Grace and glory is my portion
From the Saviour day by day.

2 Day by day I trust for manna
To sustain my heav’n-born life,
Day by day my Saviour helps me
In the struggle and the strife;
Day by day He leads me onward
Where the living waters flow,
Day by day my soul is satisfied
With Jesus here below. [Refrain]

3 Day by day the way grows brighter
As I near the golden shore,
Day by day my load seems lighter
Than it was the day before;
Day by day my love increases
As by faith I see the Lord,
Day by day my steps lead upward
To my Saviour and my God. [Refrain]
