Christian Praise Song: Day by Day

Day by Day, is a beautiful Hymn that I put together a few months ago. I didn’t have very good equipment so please take that into consideration when listening 🙂

The reason I am adding it here today, even though it is not a great copy, is because I received some very bad news today. I have a friend that is dying of cancer and he was told a few weeks ago that he had 3 months to live. Sadly, after taking a biopsy, the results came back today and they told him that he only had a week at the most.

I am very saddened by this turn of events and very discouraged about it all. I remembered this particular song “Day by Day” and remembered how it has always gotten me through the tough times before. It puts my eyes on Jesus and reminds me that He is in control. This gives me some peace and I hope it will do the same for you no matter what you may be going through.

Day by Day

1 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

2 Ev’ry 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

3 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
