Everybody I know says they need just one thing
And everybody seems to think they've got it coming
Still I want to love and serve You more and more
Save me from those things that might distract me
I don't want to lose the eternal for the things that are passing
If it isn't for the love that goes on and on with
[Chorus]
You're my one thing
You're my one thing

Who have I in Heaven but You Jesus?
I could cross the most distant reaches
Cause I'm certain already, I'm sure I'd find
[Chorus]
Every night and every day
Or you drift away
With the choices you make
To watch and work and love and sing and pray
And what better could I hope to find down here on earth?
Of this world, but I'd just be wasting my time

One thing
The pure in heart, the pure in heart
And I know that the pure
And I know that the pure in heart shall see God
That the pure in heart that the pure in heart shall see God
And I know that the pure
And I know that the pure in heart shall see God
And I know that the pure in heart shall see God
