Representative Text

1 Step by step and day by day,
March we on our forward way;
Never backward, never still,
Guided by our leader’s will.

Refrain:
Savior, Master, teach us where
All thy perfect pathways are;
Weak and humble tho’ we be,
Step by step we’ll follow thee.

2 Step by step and one by one,
Lives begin and lives are done;
True and firm for Jesus’ sake,
Let us make each step we take. [Refrain]

3 Step by step, the task is small,
None too great for each and all;
Just by this and nothing more,
Shall we reach the heav’nly shore. [Refrain]
