"There's one thing", said the man to the Pharasee leaders,
"Before, I was blind, but now I see".
They were blind to one thing, they kept asking questions,
Of Jesus' power to lead.
[Jesus said,](1) "Follow me, follow me,
Let my Spirit take the lead.
Follow me once you see, (1)
Follow me once you're free, (2)
Come on in, sit by me, (3)
Just one thing: follow me.
[Luke 18:22, Mark 10;21]
"There's one thing that you lack", Jesus said to the rich man,
"One thing you will need to be free".
"Go and sell what you have, and make treasure in heaven,
And then you may, come follow me".
"There's one thing", said the guest, Jesus, to the host, Martha,
"There's only one thing of concern".
"Sister Mary discovered the thing most important
I won't take this away from her".
I'm still not all I should be
But I'm focusing all my energy
On one thing:
Forgeting the past and
Looking forward to what lies ahead.
