One day at a time
We can learn to leave the past behind
One day at a time
We can look the future in the eye
One day at a time
We can learn to live

The gates of the garden are open
Wide and trusting
70 thousand will enter
Of them without reckoning

One day at a time
We can learn to leave our fears behind
One day at a time
We can stare our hopes in the eye
One day at a time
We can learn to live

And if you meet the evening
Don't wait for the sun to rise

One day at a time
We can leave all treasures behind
One day at a time
We can watch the clocks unwind
One day at a time
A child is born into this world
Eyes blind
One day he will find his sign
And glimpse some other kind of life to live by
One day

One day at a time
We can put machines behind
One day at a time
We can learn how birds survive
One day at a time
We can learn to fly
