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 🙏
I found the words of this hymn at the back page of Andrew Murray book Waiting On God
This is the first time l have heard it the words are absolutely beautiful what a wonderful Saviour we have who gives new life divine, He keeps us in His love, He keeps us in His sight, He bears our burden and shares our sorrows, He thinks of us and Abides every moment

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
