One by One

I have a quick post today. I wanted to share this video with you. I took my children to the EFY Steady and Sure Concert in 2008 and loved the music so much that I bought the CD and listened to it so many times. This is one of my favorite songs from it. It reminds me that while the atonement was for everyone, it was also very personal for each one of us. And Jesus loves us each individually and will come to each of us to succor us in the unique way that we need Him and He knows how.

"One by One" Performed by Hilary Weeks


When the night is clear enough I can see through Heaven's door.
Endless stars like endless sand upon the ocean's shore.
Of all the human lives to plead, or ever that will be.
I stand amazed that Heaven knows me.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you, doesn't know your name.
He knows us, one by one.

When he saw the hungry thousand, every person ate.
Comforted the aching the soul, and looked into each face.
And when he had a world to save, he had a world of time
To stop and hold a little child.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you, doesn't know your name.
He knows us one by one.

He notices it all, the sparrow when it falls,
The sheep within his fold, every person breathed
Was born upon his soul, one at a time he makes us whole.

He hears one by one, loves one by one.
When this crowded world around you doesn't know your name.
He knows us, one by one.
The way he loves you is one by one.

  3. I love any music EFY related. Thank you for reminding me that the Atonement is also personal for each of us. I love this song too. I can't wait to take my kids to EFY when they are at that age :)

  4. Beautiful song.
    I've often heard people say in talks that Heavenly Father knows our names. I want to stand up and say, "He knows a lot more about us than that." He loves and knows us one by one.
