Representative Text

1 Day by day we magnify Thee,
When our hymns in school we raise;
Daily work begun and ended,
With the daily voice of praise.

2 Day by day we magnify Thee-
When as each new day is born,
On our knees at home we bless Thee
For the mercies of the morn.

3 Day by day we magnify Thee-
In our hymns before we sleep;
Angels hear them, watching by us,
Christ's dear lambs all night to keep.

4 Day by day we magnify Thee
Not in words of praise alone;
Truthful lips and meek obedience
Show Thy glory in Thine own.

5 Day by day we magnify Thee--
When, for Jesus' sake, we try
Every wrong to bear with patience,
Every sin to mortify.

6 Day by day we magnify Thee--
Till our days on earth shall cease,
Till we rest from these our labours,
Waiting for Thy Day in peace!

7 Then, on that eternal morning,
With Thy great redeemed host,
May we fully magnify Thee--
Father, Son and Holy Ghost!

Amen.
