Step By Step

He does not lead me year by year
nor even day by day
But step by step my path unfolds,
My Lord directs my way.

Tomorrow’s plans I do not know
I only know this minute!
But He will say "This is the way,
By faith now walk ye in it."

And I am glad that it is so; today
is enough to bear.
And when tomorrow comes,
His grace shall far exceed its care.

What need to worry then or fret?
The God who gave His Son holds all
my moments in His hand and gives
them one by one.
