“This Is Thy Day,” New Era, Mar. 1999, 10–11In Tune: This Is Thy DayWords and music by Daryl O. Smith 1. Father in Heaven, I’m thankful to seeThy purpose, Thy vision of what life can be.Knowing this purpose, I come now to Theeand offer my whole heart to be more like Thee.2. Often this pathway brings challenge and grief,But giving of myself strengthens belief.I still will press on, My promise to keepof serving my Savior by feeding His sheep.ChorusFather, it’s Thy day;I’ll walk valiantly this road that’s before me.In Thy strength I’ll succeed.Father, I promise to walk in Thy ways,to do Thy work, to live Thy law,to take Thy call, for this is Thy day.Copyright © 1999 by Daryl O.
