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.

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.

The words of this song were the answer of what to say to a hurting friend. Comfort. Thank you, Lord.

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.

This is the most thrilling song bringing me close to the Lord.

Would you have a music sheet, can I have a copy to play on my accorfion?

Thank you.

Thank you for sharing that. Garcia family. Our first son also went home to be with the Lord before he was born. May the Lord comfort you in this time and richly impart his grace.

This hymn has always been my favorite not realizing it would carry my husband and I through the death of our youngest son in April 2020. Thank you!!
