Deep in the darkness I have known
I stumble aimless and alone
At last too weary of the pain
I choose to find my way again

I journey step by step along
This healing path that makes me whole
I am a pilgrim of my mind
I am a seeker of my soul

Yesterday is history. tomorrow is a mystery
I know the past is dead, the future’s blind
By looking to this moment for the light I need to find my way
I will make it one day at a time

And though this journey is my own
I need not travel it alone
By sharing faith with broken friends
A broken pilgrim slowly mends

We journey step by step along
This healing path that makes us whole
We are the pilgrims of our mind
We are the seekers of our soul
