Day by day, my Lord and Savior,
May I trust Thy tender care;
Day by day grow wiser, better:
Hear, O Jesus, hear my prayer.


Blessèd Savior, thronèd in Heav­en,
Hear, oh hear my earnest prayer;
Blessèd Savior, pure and holy,
Be Thou with me everywhere.

Teach me, Thou who art so holy,
How I best may do Thy will;
How in all my earthly living
Thy commandments to fulfill.


Guide me in Thy ways of wisdom,
Be Thou with me everywhere;
Wheresoe’er my feet may wander,
Let me feel that Thou art there.
