A. J. Flint
One day at a time, with its failures and fears,
With its hurts and mistakes, with its weakness and tears,
With its portion of pain and its burden of care;
One day at a time we must meet and must bear.
One day at a time-but the day is so long,
And the heart is not brave, and the soul is not strong;
O Thou merciful Christ, be Thou near all the way;
Give courage and patience and strength for the day.
One day at a time, and the day is His day;
He hath numbered its hours, though they haste or delay.
His grace is sufficient; we walk not alone;
As the day, so the strength that He giveth His own.
