One Foot

One Foot

A powerful and easy-to-join anthem of hope to step us right through the impossible.

Composer & Copyright

Original song copyright Melanie DeMore.


Practice track recordings will be posted here this week, sung by Melanie herself!

Until then…

Wholehearted Chorus practice tracks coming soon!


Chorus: You gotta put one foot in front of the other and lead with love
Put one foot in front of the other and lead with love
Don’t give up hope! 
You’re not alone
Don’t you give up
Keep movin’ on
Lift up your eyes
Don’t you despair
Look up ahead
The path is there
I know you’re scared
Well I’m scared too
But look at me
Right next to you

  • Elizabeth Bromley

    are there still teaching tracks coming for this one?

    I’d like to buy the sheet music for One Foot / Lead with Love for my community choir in New Zealand and/or pay for the vocal parts.

    • Lisa G.

      I don’t have or sell any sheet music or arrangements Shona. You might reach to Melanie to see if she has it.
