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.

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.


The Love of our creator indeed keeps us through this troubled world, each day comes with His mercies and promises of love. This song takes me to His throne. Continue trusting in Him.

This is a wonderful hymn that I remember from my childhood. Don't hear it sung in churches now a days. The words mean much more to me now then back then as I endure the health issues that come with being elderly.


My son is admitted and I need this as my ring tone. To get comfort.
