1 Just for today, dear Father, we pray,
Bright let Thy love-light gleam o’er our way;
Wash us and make our hearts pure within,
Take from us e’en the longing to sin.

Just for today,
Just for today,
Guide us and keep us
Just for today.

2 Just for today, oh, help us to be
Lights trimmed and burning, shining for Thee;
Where duty calls us, pointing the way,
Serving Thee truly each passing day. [Refrain]

3 Just for today, whatever betide,
Clasp our hands closer, walk by our side;
Safe in Thy keeping, naught can affright,
Following Jesus, darkness is light. [Refrain]

Lizzie De Armond was a prolific writer of children's hymns, recitations and exercises. When she was twelve years old her first poem was published in the Germantown, Pa. Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
