One day at a time
We can learn to leave the past behind.
One day at a time
We can look the future in the eye.
One day at a time
We can learn to live.

Gates of the guardian are abound,
Wide and the trusting (?)
Seventy thousand will enter
Of them without reckoning.

One day at a time
We can learn to leave our fears behind.
One day at a time
We can stare our hopes in the eye.
One day at a time
We can learn to live.

And if you meet the evening
Go wait for the sun to rise.

One day at a time
We can leave our treasures behind.
One day at a time
We can watch the clocks unwind.

One day at a time
A child is born into this world, eyes blind.
One day he will find his sight
And glimpse another kind of light
To live by one day.

One day at a time
We can learn to leave machines behind.
One day at a time
We can learn how birds survive.
One day at a time
We can learn to fly.
