Day by Day and With Each Passing Moment

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.

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 Counellor 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 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 with Christ the Lord I stand.

In His Time

In the Bulb There is a Flower

In the bulb there is a flower,
in the seed, an apple tree,
in cocoons, a hidden promise:
butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter
there’s a spring that waits to be;
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.

There’s a song in every silence,
seeking word and melody;
there’s a dawn in every darkness,
bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future;
what it holds, a mystery,
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.

In our end is our beginning,
in our time, infinity;
in our doubt there is believing,
in our life, eternity;
in our death, a resurrection,
at the last, a victory;
unrevealed until its season,
something God alone can see.
