Day by Day

This song has been a special blessing to me as well.

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 I reach the Promised Land.

This one reminds me of my mom. :) It was good to see you this weekend, if only for a brief time. Caitlin sure enjoyed your girls! Hope you're home safe and sound.
