Hymnary Friends,

We don't often ask for money.

But, before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going.

You are one of more than half a million people who come here every month: worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and many more. Here at Hymnary.org, you have free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Living for Jesus day by day

Full Text

1 Living for Jesus day by day,
Following where he leads the way;
Never a choice in great or small,
Doing his will, and that is all.

Living for Jesus, peace within,
Trusting the blood that saves from sin;
Walking with him the narrow way,
Unto the gates of endless day.

2 Living for Jesus all the while,
Hiding the tears with song and smile;
Tears may be tinged with rainbow's hue,
Heavenly sunlight shining thro'. [Refrain]

3 Living for Jesus everywhere,
Sowing the seed both here and there;
Trusting that fruit will surely come,
Jesus will reap the harvest home. [Refrain]

4 Living for him in ease or pain,
Sorrow or joy, sunshine or rain,
Taking the bitter with the sweet,
Resting my soul at Jesus' feet. [Refrain]
