Day by Day ~ Karolina W. Sandell-berg (1832 – 1903)

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.

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.

Help me then, in ev’ry 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.

  1. I can hear Len and Kath singing it in Russian!
    Love the picture you posted with this!

    Lana, yep…I’m singing the alto along with Kathy!

  2. This was the first solo I ever sang in church as a young teenager. A fond but embarassing memory.
    I still like the song, regardless of what I did to it…

    Rosemary, This is the song I chose to try out for a singing group in the 70′s. I chose it because of the simple alto part.

  3. One of my favorites and I’m so glad I’ve sung it so many times that I have it memorized. It comes to mind at just the right moments. It is so important to live day by day. Len doesn’t like to sing it much any more because we sang it so often.

    Kathy, We’ll have to pull this one out at our next family gathering.
