Lyrics

One step at a time, dear Savior:
I cannot take any more;
The flesh is so weak and hopeless:
I know not what is before.

Refrain

One step at a time, dear Savior,
Till faith grows stronger in Thee;
One step at a time, dear Savior,
Till hope grows stronger in me.

One step at a time, dear Savior:
I am not walking by sight;
Keep step with my soul, dear Savior:
I walk by faith in Thy might.

Refrain

One step at a time, dear Savior:
O guard my faltering feet!
Keep hold of my hand, dear Savior,
Till I my journey complete.

Refrain

One step at a time, dear Savior:
Thou knowest all of my fear;
One word from Thy heart, dear Savior,
And Heaven’s mansions appear.
