Marijohn Wilkins – One Day At A Time lyrics

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


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

    Marijohn wilkins was my 3rd and 4th grade music teacher at tulsa's alice robertson school. Loved her as my teacher. In the 80's I was able to have a phone conversation with her and she is still in my heart though she is gone. Have and read her book: "lord, let me leave a song". I was in the "melodious boys choir" she mentioned in the book. One day at a time? None as meaningful.
