One Day at a Time

(C) I'm only human, I'm just a (G7) man,
Help me believe in what I could be,
And all that I (C) am.
Show me the stairway, (C7) I have to (F) climb,
Lord for my (C) sake, help me to (G7) take.
One day at a (C) time.


(C) One (C7) day at a (F) time sweet Jesus,
That's all I'm asking from (C) You.
Just give me the (G) strength to do ev'ryday,
What I have to (C) do.
Yester (C7) day's (F) gone sweet Jesus,
And tomorrow may (Dm) never be (C) mine.
Lord help me (G7) today, show me the way,
One day at a (C) time.

Do you remember when you walked among men?
Well, Jesus you know if you're looking below
It's worse now than then.
Pushin' and shovin', crowding my mind.
So for my sake, teach me to take,
One day at a time.
