Day by day, and with each passing moment

1
Day by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
I've no cause for worry or for fear.
He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure,
Gives unto each day what He deems best,
Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure,
Mingling toil with peace and rest.
2
Every day the Lord Himself is near me,
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,
He whose name is Counsellor and Pow'r.
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
"As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,"
This the pledge to me He made.
3
Help me then, in every tribulation,
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith's sweet consolation,
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E'er to take, as from a father's hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till with Christ the Lord I stand.

The Lord knows each time you are hurting and knows each time, how to comfort you. Sang this beautiful hymn in church yesterday. So comforting in times of trouble. Pray it will be sung to every heart that is troubled right now.

My friend Trish, who is ill with terminal cancer, shared this hymn with me a few years ago. I am thankful she has this hymn to comfort her.

I woke up with this song one morning, and I looked it up and looked into the words and asked myself what is this. Today I can say, "Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,

E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,

One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,

Till with Christ the Lord I stand.". Be encouraged God words stand

We just read the story behind this song from the book, Amazing Grace, 366 Inspiring Hymn Stories for Daily Devotions. What a blessing to hear how God blessed, Linda Sandell Berg, even in the loss of her earthly father.

What a wonderful song- especially for the turmoil of this past year, and as we step into the next one- who knows what it will bring, not only in our personal lives, but as nations and our world! One day at a time... it’s a good thing we can’t see farther than that.

A timely song for the season, brought back from the 18th century. The message of the song, renew our faith and trust in our ever loving God, that of casting all our cares on Him.
