Day by day in love and favor
With my Savior I would grow;
Day by day of His compassion
More and more I long to know.
Day by day to my deliverer,
Him who died that I might live;
For His tender, loving kindness
All the glory I would give.
Day by day to Him who saves me
I would come by faith and prayer;
Nearer to His throne approaching,
I would leave my burden there.
Day by day with Him who leads me
I would hold communion sweet;
Then, with all the ransomed army,
Bow adoring at his feet.
