One Day At A Time
Sweet Jesus

I'm only human; I'm just a woman
Help me believe in what I could be and all that I am
Show me the stairway
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
Just Give me the strength to do everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord Help me today
Show me the way
One day at a time.

Do you remember
When you walked among men
Well Jesus, you know if you're looking below
That it's worse now than then
Cheat and stealing there’s violence and crime 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
Just Give me the strength to do
everyday what I have to do
Yesterday's gone sweet Jesus
And tomorrow may never be mine
Lord Help me today
Show me the way
One day at a time.

This is the version that Judy Collins sings

This song came into my mother's thoughts while waiting for the news of her breast biopsy. She didn't remember all the words and mentioned it to a friend.  The friend gave her a CD with One Day at a Time, being the first song.  It gave her strength to cope with the news of cancer and deal with what lies a head.  She calls it her song.  It has been an inspiration to her and our family.  We are grateful for the comfort it inspires to us all.

Hi Nick,

You may be thinking of Cristy Lane, whose version reached #1 on the country charts in 1980. You can hear the track on iTunes here:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/one-day-at- ...

Her album is available on Amazon here...

Actually, the first person to record the song (written by Kris Kristoffersen and Marijohn Wilkin) was Marilyn Sellars in 1974. She is still performing today, and you can hear her sing it on this album:

God bless you all,

I am touched by reading the comments on this song. This is a song of hope in the Lord. One who has hit the rock bottom, one who has experienced complete failure, one whose dreams and plans are shattered would find solace in this beautiful song. God bless...
Someone wanted the lyrics of this song and I googled. Fortunately I found this site. Cannot believe this dialogue is on for more than 2 years!!!

What Bible verse inspired the song One Day ata Time
Posted:  19 Jan 2009 09:59
According to the author of the song, the verse that inspired her was Ephesians 5:20. There's a neat write-up about the author of the song, Marijohn WIlkin, at http://www.cbn.com/spirituallife/devotions/te ...

Here's an excerpt:

At age fifty-three, Marijohn wrote her most famous song, “One Day at a Time.” Here’s the story behind the song, just as she told it to me:

“I really could not understand why I was having so much success in the country music field. Although I had enjoyed quite a rush as a country writer, I had reached the end of my rope. I truly felt that I had been called to be a gospel writer, but I couldn’t seem to get there. I was in the music scene up to my ears in Nashville. Wherever it was ‘happening,’ I was there, helping to make it happen. Yet I became frustrated! I’d had it!

“I stopped by a small church and asked a young minister if I could talk with him. I found out later that I was the first person he had counseled. I drove up in my new, midnight blue Cadillac, dressed in a full-length mink coat with sparkling jewelry and my cowboy boots. I said, ‘I have all kinds of problems.’ He looked at me and said, ‘You look like you don’t have any financial problems.’ I answered, ‘No, I don’t.’ He said, ‘You look pretty healthy.’ I said, ‘Well, I guess I am.’ He then asked, ‘What is your main problem?’ I said, ‘I don’t know.’ He didn’t seem to know what more to say to me.

“At that point in our conversation, he said a funny thing, but it was okay, because it worked. He asked, ‘Did you ever think about thanking God for your problems?’ (Ephesians 5:20). I left his office and drove back home.

“When I reached the house, I found it was empty, and I was glad. I sat down at the piano and began to play and sing—out loud—the entire chorus to ‘One Day at a Time.’ ‘That’s all I’m asking from You. Just give me the strength to do every day, what I have to do.’ It just dropped into my heart. And when I had finished singing, my ‘Nashville mind’ said, ‘That’s a hit!’ That was the first thing that popped into my head. I then recognized that the song was a prayer—and I got some relief.

“I wrote the chorus on the back of an envelope as fast as I could write. I then continued to sing, ‘Do You remember when You walked among men? Well, Jesus, You know, if You’re looking below, it’s worse now than then.’ I wasn’t quite sure the Lord knew where I was. I’d never quit believing in Him, but I was in Nashville and God was in heaven, and never the twain shall meet. I really didn’t know if God actually knew where I was. I realize that some don’t believe that, but that was where I was at the time.

“The following morning, my mind went back to the song. I had the second verse and the chorus, but somehow I couldn’t get the song started properly. Kris Kristofferson and Rita Coolidge, who were married at the time, were in town. They had just had a huge hit, ‘Why Me, Lord?’ written by Kris. Their recording had won a Dove Award for them. I called Kris and asked him to help me with the first verse. He had written songs for my company, Buckhorn Music, and we’d had some pretty big hits as a publisher.

“When I showed him how I started the song, ‘I’m just a mortal . . .’ he looked at me and said, ‘Why don’t you say, “I’m only human, I’m just a man . . .” I said, ‘That’s good! That’s what I need.’ We finished the first verse in about twenty minutes. The lines just flew out from each of us.”

The song, first recorded by Marilyn Sellers, rose to become the number one song in several categories. In this country, it was first a hit on the country charts and then it crossed over to the pop charts. It was the number one pop song in England, the number one country song in Ireland, and among the top ten in two other countries. Each recording has been by a different artist in that particular country. It has long since passed the six hundred mark in artist recordings and has crossed over into the Southern Gospel Music genre.

Marijohn Wilkin, as a singer, went on to record four fabulous albums for Word Music. “One Day at a Time” was on the first album, which she titled I Have Returned. It was Marijohn’s way of letting America know that she had come back to the Lord. She is now a happy, alcohol-free Christian and has written approximately three hundred gospel songs. In 1975, she was once again honored, this time with a Dove Award. She shared the platform with other winners, including Brock Speer and James Blackwood, both of Southern Gospel Music fame. She continues to make her home in Nashville.

Could somebody tell me if "one day at a time" is BMI or Ascap or Sesac?
Thank You for your help!

One day at a time has become my favorite song currently.  I am a breast cancer survivor and a year after going through chemo and radio therapy in 2004, I was in severe depression and that leads to even more medical complications.   Long story but in short I have learned to take one day at a time and am now in good health.
