One day at a time i will walk this road i've traveled so far
One day at a time well i know i will carry on
One day at a time i can see you took my life this far
One day at a time I will take this faith along

All this hope i breathe is given by the hand that carries me
Until I'm complete and i'll take all i will
To understand this plan you have for me, for me

I've been shut up shut down held out held down
In ways i never knew i would
I can't feel your fullness in my life
Well i've been burned out broken torn out torn down
In ways i never knew i would
I can't feel your fullness in my life

One day at a time I will take these words you've given me
One day at a time I will rest in knowing you
One day at a time I will share this gift you've given me
One day at a time I will walk these valleys through

All I know is that I see how much my heart
Is longing to be cradled by your side
And i'll give all i can to one day soon
Be held by your hand, by your hand

In all these things i will press on
I'll be with you i know it wont be long

    General CommentThis is a song about not giving up, about picking up from where you left off and not throwing in the towel just because you fuck up.

    It's about how God heals people steadily and how you have to have perseverance, even in the worst of troubles.

    "Well i've been burned out broken torn out torn down, in ways i never knew i would, I can't feel your fullness in my life" - In other words no matter what happens to the guy and what he has to put up with, he can still feel God working in him and that's what makes it all worthwhile.

    "In all these things i will press on, I'll be with you i know it wont be long" - Sums it up really!
