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.

This is the most thrilling song bringing me close to the Lord.

Would you have a music sheet, can I have a copy to play on my accorfion?

Thank you.

Thank you for sharing that. Garcia family. Our first son also went home to be with the Lord before he was born. May the Lord comfort you in this time and richly impart his grace.

This hymn has always been my favorite not realizing it would carry my husband and I through the death of our youngest son in April 2020. Thank you!!

David Beam, thank you so much for your added verses. I love the meditation put into them. I plan to share them with my friends if that’s alright. It’s a beautiful hymn and a great reminder of God’s never-ending Mercy.

Somehow Ps 127 vs 1&2 brought me here... toil, agitation, emptiness are our efforts without being fellow laborers with GOD.

This is the song that I wake up spontaneously humming everyday since the COVID-19 outbreak. God bless everyone.
