Sabbath Songs: One by One

Are not five sparrows sold for two farthings, and not one of them is forgotten before God?

But even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

–Luke 12:6-7



When the night is clear enough I can see through Heavens door.
Endless stars like endless sand upon the oceans floor.
Of all the human lives to plead, or ever that will be.
I stand amazed that Heaven knows me.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you,
doesn't know your name.
He knows us, one by one.

When He saw the hungry thousand, every person ate.
Comforted the aching the soul, and looked into each face.
And when He had a world to save, He had a world of time.
To stop and hold a little child.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you,
doesn't know your name.
He knows us one by one.

He notices it all, the sparrow when it falls,
the sheep within his fold,
every person breathed was born upon his soul,
one at a time He makes us whole.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you
Doesn't know your name.
He knows us, one by one.

The way He loves you is one by one.
