One Thing Spoken

One thing God has spoken

Two things have I heard

He whose laws are broken

Every day on earth

Seasons always spin unending

Every day turns into night

As the players still pretending

All prefer the dark to light

One thing

One thing spoken

Two things

Have I heard

God above has awesome power

And He loves the world

While the nations rage defiant

All the demons curse in spite

Fleeing from His holy presence

All are hiding from the light

Who has strength to stop the violence

Only God who must prevail

He who sees will surely silence

All who truth and love assail

One thing

One thing spoken

Two things

Have I heard

God who has almighty power

Came in flesh to save the world

Who has love to temper vengeance

Grace to pardon, captives free

Only God who calls His children

Opens eyes and makes them see

One thing God has spoken

Two things have I heard

God above with power unbroken

Came in love to save the world

[One thing God has spoken,

two things have I heard:

that you, O God, are strong,

and that you, O Lord, are loving.

Psalm 62:11-12]
