One Step Closer

Written by Mary Jo Daly

(verse) You never promised life would be easy

Even Jesus had His cross to bear

But now He’s beside You, there in Your kingdom

And I know someday I, too, will be there

 

Here in the darkness, the road is rocky

But I keep walkin’, and pushin’ on

I’ll never stop tryin’ to reach You, Father

And one day, soon, I’ll sing a vict’ry song

 

(chorus) I keep takin’

One step closer to glory

One step closer to You

Each trial & heartache that I journey through

Brings me one step closer to You

 

One step closer to Heaven

One step closer to You

When I see the sunrise and each day is new

I know I’m one step closer to You

 

(verse) Moses, he traveled all through the desert

Desperately trying to follow You, Lord

He never quite reached the land he was seeking

But he’s living in Heaven, what a sweet reward

 

(revised He kept takin’

chorus) One step closer to glory

One step closer to You

Each trial & heartache that he journeyed through

Brought him one step closer to You

 

One step closer to Heaven

One step closer to You

When he saw the sunrise and each day was new

He was one step closer to You

 

(bridge) You’ve promised, Father, to give me rest

When my life on Earth is over

You’ll be there to welcome me with outstretched arms

Sweet peace will flow through me, like a river

So … (go to chorus)

 

(tag) One step closer

A little bit closer

Yes, I’m one step closer to You
