There’s only One…

I keep listening to “There’s Only One (Holy One)” by Caedmon’s Call. It is full of the simple truths that I so easily forget every day. I could try and describe the effect that this song has on me every time I hear it, but it wouldn’t do it justice.

(Side note: Caedmon’s is in the studio again… I think it’s the follow-up to Share the Well, which is the album that this song comes from [which is one of the best albums of the past few years – honest])

Thus, here you go:

Left his seamless robe behind
Woke up in a stable crying
Lived and died and rose again
Savior for a guilty land

It’s a story like a children’s tune
And it’s grown familiar as the moon
So now I ride my camel high
And I’m aiming for the needle’s eye

I chased the wind, but I chased in vain
I chased the earth, but it would not sustain

There’s only one who never fails
To beckon the morning light
There’s only one who sets loose the gales
And ties the trees down tight
When all around my soul gives way
He is all my hope and stay
There’s only one, only one Holy One

Lord, You are my Prince of Peace
But this war brings me to my knees
See there’s a table You’ve prepared
And all my enemies are there
But where my Shepherd leads
Where else can I go
Who else fills my cup till it overflows

There’s only one who never fails
To beckon the morning light
There’s only one who sets loose the gales
And ties the trees down tight
When all around my soul gives way
He is all my hope and stay
There’s only one, only one Holy One

There’s only one who never fails
To beckon the morning light
There’s only one who sets loose the gales
And ties the trees down tight
To the Solid Rock I fly
Though He bids me come and die
There’s only one, only one Holy One

One thought on “There’s only One…

  1. Yeah, we all need to remember that there is only one God, only one answer. For me, with medicine, I have to remember the same God that allows patients to heal through medicine is the same one that can comfort us during our losses or during a crisis. 🙂
