Representative Text

1 This day shall be God’s day as I go along,
Each hour and each moment to Him shall belong;
My service and talents whate’er they may be
Belong to my Saviour who gave all for me.

Chorus:
This day shall be God’s day, His way shall be my way,
And glad is the day when I make His way mine;
God’s day is the best day, His way is the best way,
He leads and I follow His leading divine.

2 This day shall be God’s day, whate’er He may choose,
I will not deny Him, I will not refuse,
What I may be needing His love will supply;
To His precious children no good He’ll deny. [Chorus]

3 This day shall be God’s day—my Father knows best
Just what I am needing—in His love I rest;
He leadeth me onward each step of the way,
And gladly I follow thro’ all of God’s day. [Chorus]

4 Each day shall be God’s day till, with Him above,
All days shall be one day made glad by God’s love;
So onward I journey one day at a time,
Each day with the presence of God made sublime. [Chorus]
