Day by day, I will trust Christ
Day by day, He will provide
He will give me grace and mercy
If in His presence I abide.
Day by day, He knows my sorrows
Day by day, He shares my pain
Jesus is my joy and comfort
He's my strength and life again.
Day by day, I can trust Him
Though some days I come unglued
As I wait upon the Lord
I find my strength is renewed.
Day by day, I have God's blessings
Which Christ's sacrifice affords
I cannot rely on my own strength
I will rather boast in the Lord.
Day by day...

"...and as thy days, so shall thy strength be."
Midi being played is: Day By Day
(Lyrics: Karolina W. Sandell-Berg; Music:
Day by day, and with each passing moment,
Strength I find, to meet my trials here;
Trusting in my Fatherís wise bestowment,
Iíve no cause for worry or for fear.
He Whose heart is kind beyond all measure
Gives unto each day what He deems bestó
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 Counselor and Power;
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
ďAs thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,Ē
This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faithís sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
Ever to take, as from a fatherís hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
