ONE BIT AT A TIME


One bit at a time is all man needs to find his way --

In fact, a moment at a time will get him through the day.

All at once, 'tis difficult to see the way that's clear --

When taken one bit at a time, it dissipates much fear.

Fear of failing once he starts can rear its ugly head

But one bit at a time, man can control the paths he'll tread;

More relaxed and happy too -- just carefree as a boy --

He bites not more than he can chew, his work he does enjoy!

This is true for women, too, for all the human race --

But women recognized it first -- this loving gift of grace.

Mothers taught their children how to understand, through rhyme,

That they can do 'most anything just one bit at a time!
