I've been humbled by the Glory, and the power of his love
When I've stumbled and I've fallen, he's been there to pick me up
In the face of all temptation, been the strength to stand my ground
Wrapped in His sweet salvation, I know I'm Glory-bound

I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Oh, I've got no wings to fly
But I'll make it up to Heaven
One step at a time

I've cried tears of jealous sorrow, I have tasted bitter wine
Lost faith in my tommorow, and I've cursed the hands of time
I wandered through the darkness, surrendered to my doubts
I've been so close to Hell, I've could hear the devil shout

I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Oh, I've got no wings to fly
But I'll make it up to Heaven
One step at a time, oh yeah

When all the clouds have parted, and I lie face to face with death
I won't fear the darkness, in the grasp of my last breath
I climb that mighty stairway, that leads to Heaven's gate
The surrender of my soul, will be my final leap of faith

I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Oh, I've got no wings to fly
But I'll make it up to Heaven
One step at a time

Oh, I'm a man, I'm not an angel
Oh, I've got no wings to fly
But I'll make it up to Heaven
One step at a time
One step at a time
I said, one step at a time
