Singer/Band: Lina Sandell
[D]Day by day, and with each passing [Em]moment,
Strength I [A]find to [A7]meet my trials [D]here
Trusting in my Father's wise be [Em]stowment
I've no [A]cause for [A7]worry or for [D]fear
He whose heart is kind beyond all [G]measure
Gives [A]unto each [A7]day what He deems [D]best
Lovingly, its part of pain and [Em]pleasure
Mingling [A]toil with [A7]peace and [D]rest
[D]Every day the Lord Himself is [Em]near me,
With a [A]special [A7]mercy for each [D]hour;
All my cares He fain would bear and [Em]cheer me,
He whose [A]name is [A7]Counsellor and [D]Pow’r.
The protection of His child and [G]treasure
Is a [A]charge that [A7]on Himself He [D]laid;
“As thy days, thy strength shall be in [G]measure,”
This the [A]pledge to [A7]me He [D]made.
[D]Help me then, in every tribu [Em]lation,
So to [A]trust Thy [A7]promises, O [D]Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet conso [Em]lation,
Offered [A]me within [A7]Thy holy [D]Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble [G]meeting,
E’er to [A]take, as [A7]from a father’s [D]hand,
One by one, the days, the moments [G]fleeting,
Till with [A]Christ the [A7]Lord I [D]stand.
