One Step Closer

This song is by DeGarmo and Key and appears on the album This Ain't Hollywood (1980).

A small town preacher on the streets tonight
He's got a loaded Bible in his hand
Ah, he's blessed in the gospel meeting in those parking lights
He's aiming at the promise land
There's a young man pushing on the gospel plow
He carries his heart in his hand
Like to save the world, don't know how
He's a patient man

And he's one step closer
Closer to the promised land
Ah, he's one step closer
Walking in the master's plan

There's a missionary waging a holy war
In God's name, He makes him stand
Ah, Satan's on his trail, demons at his door
Combat is hand to hand
And the theologian looks for the questions
He keeps his lamp burning bright
He's determined to see God's election
If it takes all night

And he's one step closer
Closer to the promised land
Ah, he's one step closer
Walking in the master's plan

One step closer
Closer to the promised land
One step closer
Walking in the master's plan
Oh, we're one step closer
Walking in the master's plan
Ah, we're one step closer
Closer and closer we go
One step closer
Walking and walking and walking and walking
