It's all starting to catch up with me, Lord:
all the things I said weren't getting to me
are knocking at my door!

(What a difference a day makes, Lord!)

So it's time I catch up with you
to find the strength and the endurance
I need to make it through a week
that's filled with work and needs,
others and my own,
to find the trust in you I need
to take it all just one day at a time...

I know I'll get from here to there
and beyond, Lord,
if I but travel at your side and lean on you
for what will help me make it through this week...

Be with me, Lord,
and give whatever it might be I need
to live, to love, to hear the cries
of those who call on me for help...

Be with me, Lord, for without you
I am weak and I will fail
but with you I am strong and I will walk
the path you give me
one step at a time,
one day at a time...
