ONE POWER by Daniel Nahmod

Here is a copy of the words of the song I sang today, accompanied by Howie Evert on the guitar at the United Presbyterian Church of Randolph.  People requested the words and the choir director want to have the choir sing it! 

Great song with great words of respect and inclusion of all as God’s Sons and Daughters.  Song copies, music books and sheet music can be ordered by going to Daniel Nahmod’s web site.  Permission is granted for printed words in worship bulletins and for overheads.

There’s One Power, invisible
And you see it everywhere and every day
One Power, indescribable
And you speak of it with every word you say
Mysterious, until you know the truth
As simple as the love inside of you

Call it God, call it Spirit
Call it Jesus, call it Lord
Call it Buddha, Ba’ha’ulla
Angel’s Wings or Heaven’s Door
But whatever name you give it
It’s all One Power, can’t you see
It’s the power of the love in you and me

We speak so many languages
Have different clothing. different colors, different names
But different is only dangerous
When we forget that in the heart, we’re all the same
We’ll remember once we close our eyes to see
That such distances were never meant to be

Call it God, call it Spirit
Call it Jesus, call it Lord
Call it Buddha, Ba’ha’ulla
Hashem or Heaven’s Door
It’s Muhammad, it’s your mind,
It’s your soul, it’s your sign
It’s the universe, it’s music
Mother Earth or Father Time
But whatever name you give it
It’s all One Power, can’t you see
Whatever name you give it
It’s the very air we breathe
It’s the power of the love in you and me

It’s the moment of creation. It’s an everlasting peace
It’s the freedom of forgiveness. It’s the sweetness of release
It’s the joy of inspiration. It’s the sunshine on your face
It’s the birthright of all nations. It’s the boundlessness of space
It’s the beauty of a baby, The serenity of sleep
It’s the anger we abandon, For it’s love that’s most deep

It’s One Power
It’s the power of the love
That lives forever in you and me
It’s the power of the love
In you and me.
