Day By Day
Verse 1: Eb Ab Day by day, and with each passing moment, Bb Eb Strength I find to meet my trials here; Ab Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment, Bb Eb I've no cause for worry or for fear. G Ab He, whose heart is kind beyond all measure, F Eb Gives unto each day what He deems best, Ab Lovingly its part of pain and pleasure, Bb Eb Mingling toil with peace and rest. Verse 2: Eb Ab Every day the Lord Himself is near me, Bb Eb With a special mercy for each hour; Ab All my cares He fain would bear and cheer me, Bb Eb He whose name is Counsellor and Pow'r. G Ab The protection of His child and treasure F Eb Is a charge that on Himself He laid; Ab "As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure," Bb Eb This the pledge to me He made. Verse 3: Eb Ab Help me then, in every tribulation, Bb Eb So to trust Thy promises, O Lord, Ab That I lose not faith's sweet consolation, Bb Eb Offered me within Thy holy Word. G Ab Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting, F Eb E'er to take, as from a father's hand, Ab One by one, the days, the moments fleeting, Bb Eb Till I reach the Promised land.
