Day By Day (And With Each Passing Moment)
Andrew Skoog, Oscar Ahnfelt, Carolina V. Sandell Berg
Key: E
Verse 1:
E                                 F#m
Day by day, and with each passing moment
           B7                     E
Strength I find to meet my trials here
Trusting in my Father's wise bestowment,
        B7                      E
I've no cause, for worry or for fear,
He whose heart is kind beyond all measure,
          B7                     E
Give unto each day what He deems best,
Lovingly it's part of pain and pleasure,
         B7                  E
Mingling toil with peace and rest.

Verse 2:
Everyday the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour
In my cares He'll gladly share and help me
He whose name is Counselor and Power
The protection of His child and treasure,
Is a charge that on Himself He laid.
As your days, your strength shall be in measure.
This pledge to me He made.

Verse 3:
Help me then in every tribulation,
So to trust Your promise, O Lord
That I lost not faith's wise consolation,
Offered me within Your trustful Word.
Help me Lord when toil and trouble meeting,
E're to take, as from a father's hand.
One by one, the days, the moments, fleeting,
Till I reach the best, the promised land.
