Beautiful Lyrics

Our first-ever quilt delivery, 2008 (this photo was in the video)
In case you liked the song in the Seattle Children's Hospital video as much as I did, and were wondering who wrote and performed it, his name is Brandon Heath. Here are the lyrics:

The One
(Brandon Heath, Jason Ingram, Dan Muckala)

If I see one more light that’s fading
Hear about one more broken dream
Pray for just one more faith that’s dying
It’s one too many
And if I see one more child walking
Just one more mile for water
If I wait one more minute longer
It’s one too many

When I think of what could be
If we let our hearts believe
That it takes just one
Just one could turn this all around
And if we’re living history
How will they think of you and me
If it takes just one, just one
What if, what if, what if I’m the one

If I hear one more widow crying
‘Cause there’s no one by her side
If I see one more family breaking
It’s one too many
If there’s one thing that I’m sure of
If there’s one thing that I know
You could be one in a sea of faces
Or you could be one more chance for hope

I see a nation without any walls
A beautiful haven for one and for all
I see a day when people are free
When shackles are broken and fall to the street
A voice, a cry, call out from on high
The first one of many go lay down your life
