One by Carole King

Poetic phrases come to mind
Whenever I find injustice being done
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What can one do except to be one
Talking to two, touching three
Growing to four million
Each of us is one – all of us are one

I go through phases when I realize
It wouldn’t be wise to try and bring it down
And I wonder, what am I gonna do
What should one do except just be around
Staying alive, putting out love
Growing to five billion
Each of us is one – all of us are one

Open your heart and let the love come shining through
And you will do what you need to do
To know just where the other you is coming from
He is one – she is one
A tree is one – the earth is one – the universe is one
I am one – we are one

It just amazes me that I can be
Part of the energy it takes to serve each other
And I wonder what am I gonna do
What can one do
Except be one
Each of us is one – all of us are one
We are one
What am I gonna do
Be one

Being that Martin Luther King Day is next week, I want to take the time to dedicate some songs to his memory…

Save the World by Yolanda Adams

Looking at the news today is a cold depressing thing
we see our nation stained and the whole worlds up in flames.
People starving all over the land
what a low down dirty shame and abroad we see the same we have our selves to blame.
Well it’s been said that we should share what the master gives to us
well the time has come to help someone less fortunate than us.[Chorus:]
Save the world,
feed the hungry people,
clothe the little babies,
lend a helping hand.
Save the world, feed the hungry people, show them we love and care.

I took a walk into town this morning
a beggar followed me
he said he needed food to eat and spare some change please.
I took him into the closest grill and paid for all he could eat
it warmed my heart as he said thank you ma’am to me.
Well it saddened me as walked a little further
just to see that there is more than one on every corner without a place to sleep.

[Chorus]

We’ve got to feed the hungry mind soul and body
shelter feed and cloth everybody with much as we can
please stretch out your hand.

[Chorus]

What If by Reba McEntire

Sometimes I don’t understand
Feels like I’m living in a world gone mad
look around all around it’s just the same people
they just rush everywhere
No time to ever take the time to care
we’re the one’s, we’re the losers in this game
so where is the tenderness we sacrifice for progress
and where is the love we need
you know it makes me wonder

What if everybody, what if everybody reached out with just one hand (reached out with just one hand)
What if everybody, what if everybody sang out with just one voice (sang out with just one voice)
Maybe we could just change things
What if everybody, what if everybody cared with just one heart (cared with their own heart)
What if everybody, what if everybody tried to light one spark (tried to light one spark)
Maybe we could change things somehow

Somehow it’s all up to us
we got to take this world and make it a world of love
we got to do it now, we got to find a way to make it change somehow
There’s got to be a way for us to make it better

What if everybody, what if everybody reached out with just one hand (reached out with just one hand)
What if everybody, what if everybody sang out with one voice (sang out with just one voice)
Maybe we could just change things
What if everybody, what if everybody cared with just one heart (cared with their own heart)
What if everybody, what if everybody tried to light one spark (tried to light one spark)
Maybe we could change things…

Here in our hearts, oh the answer is there
if we only look there inside them
we can make it better oh we can make it
we can make it better if we try together

What if everybody, what if everybody reached out with just one hand (reached out with just one hand)
What if everybody, what if everybody sang out with one voice (sang out with just one voice)
Maybe we could just change things

There’s got to be (got to be a better way)
For us to make it better…
sang out with just one voice…

What if everybody, what if everybody cared with just one heart (cared with their own heart)
What if everybody, what if everybody tried to light one spark
Maybe we could change things…
