Every day, the Lord Himself is near me
With a special mercy for each hour;
All my cares He fain would bear, and cheer me,
He whose name is Counselor and Power;
The protection of His child and treasure
Is a charge that on Himself He laid;
As thy days, thy strength shall be in measure,
This the pledge to me He made.
Help me then, in every tribulation
So to trust Thy promises, O Lord,
That I lose not faith’s sweet consolation
Offered me within Thy holy Word.
Help me, Lord, when toil and trouble meeting,
E’er to take, as from a father’s hand,
One by one, the days, the moments fleeting,
Till I reach the promised land.
– Day By Day by Karolina W. Sandell-Berg
It is such a comfort knowing that our Lord is always near with mercy and comfort for whatever trials we may be facing. We never walk dark roads alone and even if it seems like no one else sees your suffering, our Heavenly Father sees and knows the burdens on your heart. Cast your cares on Him, for He cares for you. (1Peter 5:7)
