This one thing only

This one thing only, loving God,
            plant firmly in my heart;
Amidst our work, to hear your word
            and choose the better part;

Lord, teach us when to labor on
            and when to stop and rest,
To hear your voice and, so restored,
            to serve you at our best.

O give this gift, our loving God,
            and this one grace please give:
To know one thing above all else
            and in this one thing live.

TEXT: CSF, 2013, after Jesus' visit to Martha and Mary in Luke 10:38-42
MUSIC: Tune McKEE, African American spiritual; Jubilee Songs, 1884
