One by One
Words by David A. Bednar Music by Paul Cardall
Church Choir Version arranged by Marshall McDonald
1. One by one, one by one. Jesus, the Fa-ther’s Beloved Son— One by one, one by one— From the beginning said, “Thy will be done.” Jesus Christ came to earth to fulfill God’s plan, For He alone could atone as Savior of man. The Lord blessed and beckoned them, “Come unto me,” And willingly sacrificed to set us free. One by one, one by one. He suffered for us and victory won. One by one, one by one. We marvel at all His love has done, One by one.
2. One by one, one by one. Multitudes gathered and saw Him come. One by one, one by one. Each heard a voice declare, “Behold My Son.” Jesus Christ came and stood in the midst of them. They fell to the earth in great rev’rence for Him. The Lord bid, “Arise, and come forth unto me.” With hands they did feel and with eyes they did see. One by one, one by one. Each knew and bore record, He is our Lord. One by one, one by one. They cried “Hosanna” with one accord, One by one.
3. One by one, one by one. Christ looked around Him and saw their tears. One by one, one by one. In His compassion, He calmed their fears. Jesus Christ healed each one brought forth unto Him. Then He blessed each precious child and prayed for them. The angels descended from heaven above, Encircling those little ones; each felt His love. One by one, one by one. He intercedes for each daughter and son. One by one, one by one. Strength from His grace gives us pow’r to become, One by one.
