Day by Day the Manna Fell
Lyrics by Josiah Conder
Day by day the manna fell:
O, to learn this lesson well.
Still by constant mercy fed,
Give us, Lord, our daily bread.
Day by day, day by day the promise reads,
Daily strength for daily needs:
Cast foreboding fears away;
Take the manna, the manna for today.
Lord, our times are in Thy hand:
All my sanguine hopes have planned,
To Thy wisdom, wisdom we resign,
And would mold my will to Thine.
Thou our daily tasks shalt give;
Day by day to Thee we live;
So shall added years fulfill
Not our own, our Father’s will.
Day by day.
