Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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 Counselor 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 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.
