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.

I remember this hymn most keenly when I was a teenaged girl and my heart was broken over a betrayal. As I walked in the rain I sang this song over and over, and it soothed my soul. It has a way of settling your heart in being reminded that The Lord will use every circumstance in our lives for good, if we have yielded our hearts to Him. Then our suffering can be for His glory, even if the reason we are in it is due to our own sin. To God be the glory!

I love this Swedish melody from the pen of Caolina Sandell Berg. I introduce this song to our Male Quartet called "ONE VOICE" and they love the music and the words of this song. Before we sing we always tell the story behind the song. I associated this melody with 2 Corinthian 4:16.

I sing Bass and ad lib up and down the scale to make my part more interesting - just like Bass notes of the piano.Thank you for your Ministry!


Sang this in church with my 100-year-old dad. He had all three verses memorized; I did not.

This is a very beautiful hymn; one which has helped me in times of trial to see the Light and cling to the cross; to get my focus on Him who is indeed Counselor and Power.

This song just saved my life. Beautiful melody to enhance a wonderful prayer. It uplifted my spirit and gave me a new reason to go on living. It now is "well with my soul".

This song melts my heart, and I can listen to it and listen to it and listen to it,

It restores, strengthens, and encourages me, Thank you, for putting the words

for me to see. I could not find my hymnal.
