Day by Day

Day by Day

Charge not thyself with the weight of a year,
Child of the Master, faithful and dear:
Choose not the cross for the coming week,
For that is more than He bids thee seek.

Bend not thine arms for tomorrow's load;
Thou mayest leave that to they gracious God.
"Daily," only He saith to thee,
"Take up thy cross and follow Me."
