Day by day, and with each passing moment

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.
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.
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.

Day by Day is such a blessing. Though I have known the words for decades, reading them again has brought such peace and joy to my soul.

The lyrics of the song is very refreshing to the mind. I remember during my giant trial the Lord He stays by me, I feel confident and still could focus on my work. Truly He is very kind and desires only the best for His children. On the cross He has paid my cares and concerns too, so I have His peace instead. I'm glad to hear I am His treasure. To God be the glory!

Love to see these comments for this lovely enduring song.

I sang this with my mother and sister as a trio in church since the 1940s. They have both gone to heaven.

I am in my 80s now and as I saw in one comment it means more now than ever to sing these words.

Our King is coming for us. Let us be faithful til He calls us home.
