day by day

             C                                              F

Day by day and with each passing moment

                 G                                   C

Strength I find to meet my trials here;

            Am                                    F

Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,

           G                                   C

I've no cause for worry or for fear.

                    C                                         F

He's whose heart is kind beyond all measure

              G                                              C

Gives unto each day what He deems best-

          Am                                    F

Lovingly, its part of pain and pleasure,

              G                                 C

Mingling toil with peace and rest.



          C                                      F

Everyday the Lord Himself is near me

            G                                   C

With a special mercy for each hour;

           Am                                              F

All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me,

                 G                                      C

He whose name is Counselor and Power

            C                                       F

The protection of His child and treasure

        G                                         C

Is a charge that on Himself He laid;

             Am                                            F

"As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,"

              G                            C

This the pledge to me He made.



               C                            F

Help me then in every tribulation

            G                               C

So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,

          Am                                           F

That I lose not faith's sweet consolation

             G                                C

Offered me within Thy holy Word.

             C                                               F

Help me Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,

            G                                    C

E'er to take, as from a father's hand,

            Am                                          F

One by one, the day, the moments fleeting,

       G                                 C

'Til I reach the promised land.
