Never from the future borrow
    Burdens that no good repay,
Strength required for tomorrow,
    May be lost on us today.

God the present moment calls us
    Forth to labor in the field,
Not to fear what may befall us,
    But the weapons bravely wield.

Trials that we now are breasting
    On our journey nearly done,
Are our faith and patience testing,
    Ere the victory is won.

Duties as they come before us
    Each perform with willing heart;
He with richest blessings o’er us,
    Will be faithful on his part.

Every needed grace he’ll lend us,
    If we do his righteous will;
In the darkest hour defend us,
    And through life be with us still.
