I live a simple life, I take a day at a time I spend my mornings with God before I hit the grind The subtleties of darkness never cease to amaze As a physical world creates a spiritual haze
Blinded by distractions Lost in matterless affairs Reaching through the darkness Trusting You will meet me there
[Chorus] Day by day, day by day Day by day, day by day Oh dear Lord, three things I pray [one, two, three] To see thee more clearly [day by day] To love thee more dearly [day by day] To follow thee more nearly [I got to take it] Day by day
You cruise around the corner You watch your back
You sweep your feet down alley streets Sometimes you creep, I never see you coming Monday, man you're on my back Like a knapsack strapped with my heavy burden
No, You cannot condemn me I won't buy your bag of goods You've got nothing for me anyway That's why I pray
These three things I do pray Day by day
Day by day, by day, by day [These three things] Day by day, by day, by day [I do pray] Day by day, by day, by day, by day (2x) [it's one step out of time]
As you walk Day by day Go to God and pray, "I'm gonna go Your way"
[I'm gonna pray] See thee more clearly [every day] Love thee more dearly [oooh, oh yeah] Follow thee more nearly [I'm gonna go your way] Does any body hear me?
Day by day, by day, by day by Day by day, by day, by day by Day by day, by day, by day, by day
[I know I'm always safe with you] [One day at a time]
