Day by day the manna fell;
Oh to learn this lesson well !
Still by constant mercy fed,
Give us, Lord, our daily bread.
" Day by day," the promise reads,
Daily strength for daily needs;
Cast foreboding fear away,
Take the manna of to-day.
Thou our daily task shalt give;
Day by day to Thee we live:
So shall added years fulfil
Not our own, our Father's will.
