Day by day, and with each passing moment

1
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.
2
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.
3
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.

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".

I took Lynne R's 2/25/2012 recommendation and bought the book. It has been a blessing. I look forward to waking up each moring to sing a new hymn. And I usually do not like daily devotionals.

Lynne shared a little of the story behind the hymn. Here's more:

Carolina Sandell Berg was never strong as a child, so she spent much time in her father's study and grew especially close to him. When she was 26, she accompanied her father, who was a parish pastor in Froderyd, Sweden on a voyage to Goteborg. As they stood on deck, the boat lurched and spilled Pastor Sandell overboard. The crew was unable to save him, and he drowned as his daughter looked on.

Berg was already well known for hymns she had published as a young girl, but this tragedy inspired many more. - Great Songs of Faith by Brown & Norton
