Day By Day


Tune: Repton

('Dear Lord and Father of mankind')

Psalm 90 v.10-14


Years of our life, average be

Seventy, eighty, we

Find their strength is labour, sorrow

Yet in them we the Lord may know

If melancholy flow

If melancholy flow


For our life soon cut off, and we

Like birds that fly, we be

Here for a while, then removed, gone

When we our earthly days have gone

None retains life e'er, none

None retains life e'er, none


Who the power of God's anger

Knows? When your wrath does stir

As is fear, reverence of you

So is your wrath, this sure be true

Help us keep this in view

Help us keep this in view


So teach us to number our day

To seek you and your ways

Taht we may apply our hearts to

Wisdom, it all does come from you

Lord, inspire us anew

Lord, inspire us anew


O satisfy us early, so

Your mercy we e'er know

That we may rejoice and be glad

All our days, be not always sad

Thanks for days so far had

Thanks for days so far had
