One Thing Remains by Jesus Culture
This is definitly an older song and is still a very popular song in many churches. This song is a great reminder that no matter what, His love will never fail us. In a world full of disappointment and hurt, one thing remains… and that is His love.
Here are the lyrics:
Higher than the mountains that I face
Stronger than the power of the grave
Constant through the trial and the change
One thing remains,
Yes, one thing remains
Your love never fails,
It never gives up
It never runs out on me
Because on and on, and on, and on it goes
Before it overwhelms and satisfies my soul
And I never ever have to be afraid
One thing remains
So, this one thing remains
In death, in life I’m confident and covered by the power of Your great love
My debt is paid.
There’s nothing that can separate my heart from Your great love
The verses of this song because of how much they magnify His love. In the pain, hurt, and trials we go through, His love remains. His love is stronger than the grave! That is a great reminder that He loved us enough to send His only son to die a horrible death that you and I deserved. BUT He didn’t stay dead… HE ROSE AGAIN!
We live in a world full of conditional love.
Love that gives up and love that runs out. I am beyond thankful that the God I serve loves me unconditionally. He loves me with a love that will never give up and will never, ever, run out on me!
The love God has for us is continuous. For me personally, I know how overwhelming His love can be. Sometimes I have to just stop and get on my knees in worship because I begin to think of the love that he has for me. It really is overwhelming. Because of His love, we do not have to fear. Knowing how much He loves us should make our fears run and hide.
The bridge gets me everytime I sing it.
One time I was leading worship and I was doing song that I had planned to do and in the middle of it, I stopped and prayed with my youth. Then God told me to start singing the bridge to this song. This is a song that I used to do with the youth from my other church but I was never the one playing it… so I didn’t know the chords. I was obedient to the thing God asked of me, and didn’t let something worldly, like not having chords, stop me from listening to what God told me that night during worship.
So without even thinking, I started singing it. No chords, no guitar, no other instruments. I moved my mouth away from the microphone and had them sing it. It was simply worship. An amazing site to see, it was, that everyones hands were lifted. My ears got to hear worship coming from the lips of teenagers that are going through great trials that are often overlooked by adults. I saw students get down on their knees and sing as loud as they could.
My debt is paid
This is a hard statement for me to sing when I come across it. Jesus paid our debt. We should have died on that cross but He said, “No. I love you. I will take your place.” He never sinned, yet he suffered for us as if He did. Proclaim this, knowing the sacrifice he paid to cancel your debt.
The chords are super simple. They consist of the standard worship band chords, if you know what I mean. Em, C, G, D, and an occasional Am. Easy to play for everyone.
