1 The weeks and months are passing on,
Just a day at a time;
The fleeting years are quickly gone,
Just a day at a time.

Refrain:
Just a day at a time,
Just a day at a time;
Learning more of His love and pow’r,
Just a day at a time.

2 With hopeful steps our way we tread,
Just a day at a time;
We follow where our Lord has led,
Just a day at a time. [Refrain]

3 For Him, we have a life to live,
Just a day at a time;
A witness to Himself to give,
Just a day at a time. [Refrain]

4 He sets the lessons He would teach,
Just a day at a time;
And places work within our reach,
Just a day at a time. [Refrain]

5 He gives the manna for our need,
Just a day at a time;
The Bread of heav’n on which we feed,
Just a day at a time. [Refrain]
