In Our Day of Thanksgiving

In Our Day of Thanksgiving


1 In our day of thanksgiving one psalm let us offer
for the saints who before us received the reward;
when the shadow of death fell upon them, we sorrowed,
but now we rejoice that they rest in the Lord.

2 In the morning of life, and at noon, and at evening,
they were gathered to heav’n from our worship below;
but not till God’s love, at the font and the altar,
had clothed them with grace for the way they should go.

3 These stones that have echoed their praises are holy,
and dear is the ground where their feet have once trod;
yet here they confessed they were strangers and pilgrims,
and still they were seeking the city of God.

4 Sing praise, then, and thanks that God’s love here has found them,
whose journey is ended, whose perils are past;
they believed in the light; and its glory is round them,
where the clouds of earth’s sorrow are lifted at last.

Day by Day

Day by Day

1 Day by day, your mercies, Lord, attend me,
bringing comfort to my anxious soul.
Day by day, the blessings, Lord, you send me
draw me nearer to my heav’nly goal.
Love divine, beyond all mortal measure,
brings to naught the burdens of my quest;
Savior, lead me to the home I treasure,
where at last I’ll find eternal rest.

2 Day by day, I know you will provide me
strength to serve and wisdom to obey;
I will seek your loving will to guide me
o’er the paths I struggle day by day.
I will fear no evil of the morrow,
I will trust in your enduring grace.
Savior, help me bear life’s pain and sorrow
till in glory I behold your face.

3 Oh, what joy to know that you are near me
when my burdens grow too great to bear;
oh, what joy to know that you will hear me
when I come, O Lord, to you in prayer.
Day by day, no matter what betide me,
you will hold me ever in your hand.
Savior, with your presence here to guide me,
I will reach at last the promised land.
