Moment By Moment

Dying with Jesus, by death reckoned mine;
Living with Jesus a new life divine;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine,
Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
  Moment by moment I’m kept in His love,
Moment by moment I’ve life from above;
Looking to Jesus till glory doth shine;
  Moment by moment, O Lord, I am Thine.
Never a battle with wrong for the right,
Never a contest that He doth not fight;
Lifting above us His banner so white;
Moment by moment I’m kept in His sight.
Never a trial that He is not there,
Never a burden that He doth not bear;
Never a sorrow that He doth not share,
Moment by moment, I’m under His care.
Never a heartache, and never a groan,
Never a teardrop, and never a moan;
Never a danger but there on the throne
Moment by moment He thinks of His own.
Never a weakness that He doth not feel,
Never a sickness that He cannot heal;
Moment by moment, in woe or in weal,
Jesus, my Savior, abides with me still.

Emmanuel:"God With Us!" This hymn reflects how when we are abiding, His ever presence never leaves or forsakes us! He is always here and readily available, it's US that drifts in and out of our spirit. Praise Him for His Mercy and Grace........................................................... How Comforting!

God bless you brothers and sisters, I first heard this on an audio recording of Andrew Murray a great man of God, as well as Oswald Chambers, D L Moody, Madam Guyon, Watchman Nee and so many others. We need man and woman of that age. Let us Pray the Holy Spirit uses us now in this day as He used them then. God bless you all 🙏

Story about this hymn by Sankey (from hymntime. com):

While I was at­tend­ing the World’s Fair in Chi­ca­go, Hen­ry Var­ley, a lay preach­er from Lon­don, said to Ma­jor Whit­tle: I do not like the hymn ‘I need Thee ev­ery hour’ ve­ry well, be­cause I need Him ev­ery mo­ment of the day. Soon af­ter Ma­jor Whit­tle wrote this sweet hymn…[He] brought the hymn to me in man­u­script a lit­tle lat­er, say­ing that he would give me the co­py­right of both the words and mu­sic if I would print for him five hun­dred cop­ies on fine pa­per, for dis­trib­ut­ing among his friends. His daugh­ter, May Whit­tle, who lat­er be­came the wife of Will R. Moo­dy, com­posed the mu­sic. I did as Mr. Whit­tle wished; and I sent the hymn to Eng­land, where it was co­py­right­ed on the same day as at Wash­ing­ton. In Eng­land the hymn be­came ve­ry pop­u­lar. Fall­ing in­to the hands of the well-known Rev. An­drew Mur­ray, of South Af­ri­ca, then vis­it­ing Lon­don, he adopt­ed it as his fav­o­rite hymn. A year lat­er Mr. Mur­ray vis­it­ed North­field [Mas­sa­chu­setts], and while hold­ing a meet­ing for men in the church he re­marked, If San­key on­ly knew a hymn which I found in Lon­don, and would sing it, he would find that it em­brac­es my en­tire creed. I was ve­ry anx­ious to know what hymn it was, and when he had re­cit­ed it I said to him: Doc­tor, that hymn was wri­tten with­in five hun­dred yards of where we are stand­ing. For years Dr. Mur­ray had his wife sing this hymn in near­ly all his meet­ings. It al­so became a great fav­o­rite in South Af­ri­ca dur­ing the war. Sankey, pp. 190–91
