We ask for donations here just twice a year, and this is one of those times. So, before you hit the "close" button on this box, would you consider a donation to keep Hymnary.org going? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Last month, our Hymnary website had almost 1 million visitors from around the world: people like you who love hymns. To serve our users well takes money, and we have limited sources of revenue. This fund drive is one such source.

O could I sing from day to day

O could I sing from day to day

Published in 1 hymnal

Representative Text

1 O could I sing from day to day,
A nearness to my God;
Then should my hours glide sweet away,
And live upon thy word.

2 Lord I desire with thee to live,
Anew from day to day;
In joys the world can never give,
Nor ever take away.

3 O Jesus come and rule my heart,
And I'll be wholly thine;
And never, never more depart,
For thou art wholly mine.

4 Thus till my last expiring breath,
Thy goodness I'll adore;
And when my flesh dissolves in death,
My soul shall love thee more.

5 Thro' boundless grace I then shall spend
An everlasting day,
In the embraces of my friend,
Who took my guilt away.

6 That worthy name shall have the praise,
To whom all praise is due;
While angels and archangels gaze,
On scenes forever new.

Divine Hymns of Spiritual Songs, 1802
