1. Day by day the manna fell;
O to learn this lesson well!
Still by constant mercy fed,
Give me, Lord, our daily bread.
2. "Day by day," the promise reads
Daily strength for daily needs;
Cast foreboding fears away,
Take the manna of today.
3. Lord, our times are in thy hand;
All our sanguine hopes have plann'd
To thy wisdom we resign,
And would mold our wills to thine.
4. Thou our daily task shalt give;
Day by day to thee we live;
So shall added years fulfil
Not our own, our Father's will.
