UN DIA A LA VEZ - Kris Kristofferson/Marijohn Wilkin
Spanish translation by Ruben Ramos (El Gato Negro)

Necesitado, me encuentro, Senor,
Ayudame aver yo quero saber, lo que debo aser
Muestra el comino que debo seguir
Senor, por mi bien yo quiero vivir
Un Dia A La Vez

Un Dia A La Vez, mi Cristo,
es lo que pido de ti.
Dame la fuerza para vevir
Un Dia A La Vez.
Ayer ya paso, mi Cristo,
Mañana que sa no vendra.
Ayuda me hoy yo quiero vevir
Un Dia A La Vez

(Ramos has changed a line or two in the English, for the better, I think.)
Do you remember
when you walked among men?
Things haven't changed, just rearranged
From the way they were then,
Show me the stairway I've got to climb
Lord for my sake, teach me to take
One Day At A Time.

(I generally try to sing songs as originally written, but Christy Lane, who had a big hit with this song, also changed the lyrics, and I prefer Ramos's changes to hers.)

Here's his vesion of the second verse:

One Day At A Time, sweet Jesus,
I'm trusting, my Lord, in you.
You give me the strength
to do everything
That I know I must do,
'Cause yesterday's gone, Dios mio,
Tomorrow may never be mine,
So for my sake, teach me to take
One Day At A Time

Dame la fuerza para vivir
Un Dia A La Vez

Original lyrics (Kristofferson/Wilkins):

http://www.chordie.com/chord.pere/www.ultimate-guitar.com/print.php?what=tab&id=262908

One Day at a Time
Words and music: Marijohn Wilkins and Kris Kristofferson

(C) I'm only human, I'm just a (G7) (wo)man,
Help me believe in what I could be,
And all that I (C) am.
Show me that stairway (C7) I have to (F) climb,
Lord, for my (C) sake, help me to (G7) take
One Day At A (C) Time.

Cho:
(C) One (C7) Day At A (F) Time, sweet Jesus,
That's all I'm asking from (C) You.
Give me the (G) strength to do every day
What I have to (C) do.
Yester(C7)day's (F) gone, sweet Jesus,
And tomorrow may (Dm) never be (C) mine.
Lord, help me (G7) today, show me the way,
One Day At A (C) Time.


Do you remember when you walked among men?
Well, Jesus, you know, if you're looking below,
It's worse now than then.
Pushin' and shovin', crowding my mind.
So for my sake, teach me to take,
One Day At A (C) Time.

Pedant's moment: here are the lyrics with all the accents.

Necesitado me encuentro Señor,
ayúdame a ver, yo quiero saber lo que debo hacer,
muestra el camino que debo seguir,
Señor por mi bien yo quiero vivir, un día a la vez.

Coro
Un día a la vez, mi Cristo, es lo que pido de ti,
dame la fuerza para vivir un día a la vez,
ayer ya pasó, mi Cristo, mañana quizá no vendrá,
ayúdame hoy, yo quiero vivir un día a la vez.

Tú ya viviste entre los hombres,
tú sabes Señor que hoy está peor, es mucho el dolor,
hay mucho egoísmo y mucha maldad,
Señor, por mi bien yo quiero vivir un día a la vez.
