My One Thing

Blessed are the pure in heart -Jesus
Purity of heart is to will one thing -Kierkegaard
F				     C/F  F
Everybody I know says they need just one thing
    Bb						       F
And what they really mean is they need just one thing more
					   C/F F
And everybody seems to think they've got it coming
Well I know that I don't deserve You
Still I want to love and serve You more and more
	  F	   Bb/F C/F F
You're my one thing

Save me from those things that might distract me

'Cause what will I have when the world is gone
If it isn't for the love that goes on and on with

	 Bb			Dm  C  (Bb 1st & 3rd time)
And the pure in heart shall see God

Dm	       C
Every night, every day,
     Dm		 C

And you're left to live with the choices you make

O Lord please give me strength to watch and work and love and sing and pray



F				Bb			     C F   Csus C
One thing, You're my one thing, pure in heart, pure in heart,  one thing
    F                     Bb         Dm  C
