A man is walking on the moon with his eyes turned up toward space
And the bright blue world that watches him reflected on his face
The whole world sees that hero there and the module crew also
But few can see the guiding team that guards him from below

Step by step the longest march can be won, can be won
Many stones can form an arch, singly none, singly none
And together what we will can be accomplished still,
Many drops can turn a mill, singly none, singly none

Here's a health to the man who walked the moon, and the module crew above,
And the team that watches from the sky with worry, joy, and love
To all who blazed the sky-trail come raise your glasses 'round;
And a health to the unknown heroes, too, who never left the ground

Step by step the longest march can be won, can be won
Many stones can form an arch, singly none, singly none
And together what we will can be accomplished still,
Many drops can turn a mill, singly none, singly none

Here's a health to the ship's designers, and the welders of her seams,
And all who man the radar-scan to watch our dawning dreams
For all the unknown heroes, sing out to every shore:
"What makes one step a giant leap is all the steps before!"

Step by step the longest march can be won, can be won
Many stones can form an arch, singly none, singly none
And together what we will can be accomplished still,
Many drops can turn a mill, singly none, singly none
