I'm only human I'm just a man
Help me to believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway that I have to climb
Lord for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

Do you remember when you walked among men
Well Jesus you know if you're looking below it's worse now than then
Pushing and shoving crowding my mind
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

Yes, just for my sake teach me to take one day at a time...

I'm only human I'm just a man
Help me to believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway that I have to climb
Lord for my sake teach me to take one day at a time.

One day at a time sweet Jesus that's all I'm asking from you
Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus and tomorrow may never be mine
So for my sake teach me to take one day at a time

One Day At A Time (Marijohn Wilkin & Kris Kristofferson) Story

Many times it is difficult to see the path ahead. All we can do is take things one day at a time.

The song “One Day at a Time” was written by Marijohn Wilkin when she was fifty-three years old. By this point she’d known considerable success as a songwriter of country music.

However, she’d also suffered extreme heartache and loss. Her first husband was a pilot and killed during World War II. She later struggled with alcoholism and depression.

Wilkin wrote that for all of her success she was miserable. She sought out a local minister who was unsure of how to best help her. After all, she was driving a Cadillac and wearing a full length mink coat and sparkling with jewelry.

The minister eventually asked her, “Have you ever thought about thanking God for your problems?”

She left and immediately returned to an empty house. Sitting down at the piano, she sang the entire chorus to “One Day at a time.” She recognized that the song was a prayer and would become a hit. She pulled out an envelope and one daybegan to write as fast as possible. What would become the second verse soon flowed forth.

She’d not been attending church in a while and wondered if God remembered her.

Wilkin realized she needed a start for the song. She called her friend, Kris Kristofferson. Working together the first verse was written in about 20 minutes. I try

The song has been recorded by numerous artist and hit #1 on multiple charts. Marijohn Wilkin recorded several albums. The first, I Have Returned, held the track for One Day at a Time. This was her statement of faith to let the world know she’d returned to Christ.

She has since written hundreds of gospel songs and won a Dove Award in 1975.
