O, let us exalt our dear Lord and proclaim,
In songs of true gratitude, praise to His name!
As songs of the angels in sweetest accord,
Our thanks and our praises shall rise to the Lord.

Lyrics
My Father, this I ask of Thee;
Knowing that Thou wilt grant the plea,
For this, and only this, I pray,
Strength for today, just for today.

I do not ask a lifted load,
Nor for a smooth and thornless road;
Simply for strength enough to bear
Life's daily burdens anywhere.

Strength for the present hour and need
this given, then, I'm blest, indeed;
For each day, as it comes, will bring
Sufficient strength for anything.

Strength for today, that I may make
Some sad souls glad, for Jesus' sake;
Then they, with me, at eve shall say,
Thank God for strength He gave today.

Chorus:
Strength for each trial and each task,
What more, my Father, should I ask?
Just as I need it, day by day,
Strength for my weakness, this I pray.
