Representative Text

1 Each day in sweet communion,
With Jesus now I rise,
And find His service ever
A glad and sweet surprise;
Though what each day is bringing
My soul may never guess,
Yet to His cross I’m clinging,
And on my way I press.

2 And day by day I’m learning
That though my earthly way
Is oft through shadows winding,
’Twill lead to perfect day;
Each day I know I’m resting
Within His sheltering arms;
My heart, this thought enfolding,
Is safe from earth’s alarms.

3 So trusting in His mercy
And love so measureless,
Each day my soul is fuller
Of peace and joyfulness;
Each day, while life is given,
Still stronger would I be,
Till from on high my Savior
Shall say, Come home with Me."
