1 Day by day Thy mercies, Lord, attend me,
O what comfort in this hope to rest!
All that Thou in love divine dost send me,
Draws me, Saviour, closer to Thy breast.
Thou dost love more tenderly than ever
Earthly father careth for his own:
Sorrow’s heavy burden Thou wilt never
Suffer me to carry all alone.
2 Thro’ life’s devious paths Thou e’er wilt guide me,
For each need wilt give me plenteous grace;
In temptation’s storms wilt safely hide me,
Till in glory I behold Thy face.
Thou hast promised for each day and hour
Grace to trust, and strength to do Thy will:
“As thy day is, so shall be thy power,”
This the gracious word Thou speakest still.
3 O what joy, beneath Thy heav’nly favor,
Trustingly to rest my soul in Thee;
Help me, Lord, that I may never waver,
Nor forget Thy loving care for me;
For I know, no matter what betide me,
Thou wilt ever hold me by the hand;
With Thy presence, Saviour, here to guide me,
I shall reach at last the goodly land.
