Each day, I go a little nearer
Each day, He seems a little dearer
Each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

Each day, my path gets brighter
Each day, my load gets lighter
Each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

Yes while on this pilgrim journey
Thy servant I would be
Though each day, I go a little nearer to Thee

My friends talk about me
But that don't bother me
Because each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

Each day, just go a little nearer
Each day, he seems a little dearer
Each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

Each day, my path gets brighter
Each day, my load gets lighter
Each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

You know when trouble overtakes me
Right by my side He'll be
Yes, each day I go a little nearer to Thee

He's water when I'm thirsty
He's shelter Lord for me
And each day, I go a little nearer to the Lord

Wynona Carr was an African-American gospel, R&B and rock and roll singer-songwriter, who recorded as Sister Wynona Carr when performing gospel material. She started out as a gospel singer and grew increasingly unhappy with the straight gospel direction of her career. From 1955 to 1959 Carr recorded two dozen rock & roll and R&B sides. The change from spiritual to secular music didn't help her much in terms of sales or recognition. In 1961 she released an unsuccessful pop album. She moved back to Cleveland, sinking into obscurity and suffering from declining health and depression; she died there in 1976.
