I take Thy promise, Lord, in all its length

I take Thy promise, Lord, in all its length,
And breadth and fulness, as my daily strength;
Into life's future fearless I may gaze,
For, Savior, Thou art with me all the days.
Days may be coming fraught with loss and change,
New scenes surround my life and fancies strange;
I thank Thee that no day can ever break,
Savior, when Thou wilt leave me or forsake.
There may be days of darkness and distress,
When sin has power to tempt, and care to press,
Yet in the darkest day I will not fear,
For, 'mid the shadows, Thou wilt still be near.
Days there may be of joy and deep delight,
When earth seems fairest, and her skies most bright,
Then draw me closer to Thee, lest I rest
Elsewhere, my Savior, than upon Thy breast.
And all the other days that make my life,
Marked by no special joy or grief or strife,
Days filled with quiet duties, trivial care,
Burdens too small for other hearts to share;
Spend Thou these days with me, all shall be Thine,
So shall the darkest hour with glory shine.
Then when these earthly years have passed away,
Let me be with Thee in the perfect day.

This hymn encourages me to just pursue the Lord and hold on to His Word no matter what the situation is in our christian life and in our church life. All else will fail but His promise, His Word will remain. Praise the Lord!

everything in this world is temporary and are vanities, only the Lord is eternal and worthy! Does any of you saints, know the chords for this hymn?

Whatever circumstances we are in the Lord is always with us. Everything around us may change but His Word, His promises to us will never change.

Praise the Lord that He can be with us as our strength and working in us ALL the days- not just the good or bad, but also the ordinary days in between where nothing seems to happen.

I really enjoyed this song as I went through all the different kinds of days of my life. Praise the Lord for His grace!
