One World Humor

I like all kinds of music but my radio is primarily set to the Christian station (unless Jon drives my car and then he changes it to country. He's sneaky that way). I'm not a huge country fan but that is what he listens to and so I just go along with it. Sometimes, just for fun and to mess with him I'll break out into 80's songs by artists such as AC/DC, Michael Jackson or Boy George. The cringe factor is fabulous.

There are some Christian artist that I think are cool, but Toby Mac is probably the coolest. I mean, how many white Christian singers can use the word 'dope'(as in 'that's cool' dope, not the 'other' dope) in their songs and make it work? I was on YouTube trying to find the video for one of his songs that I really like and has a message we could all stand to listen to, when I came across this little ditty. It's brilliant and ridiculous and the family got a good laugh out of it.



Since I didn't find the exact video I was looking for, I posted the lyrics below (which was what I was really after). They're long, but worth a read.

One time
One world
Two times
One love
Three times
Rewind
'Cause I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God's children

Come as you are
Come just like you be
It's the bumps and curves of our history
But no blocks in the road that we can't traverse
And no wounds from the past that can't be nursed

All hate gonna to dissipate from our fate
No check, together we got a checkmate
All hate gonna dissipate and fade away
To make room for a brand new day

We got one world 'til its time to fly
We got so it's one love 'til we say goodbye
We got one world its enough to share
Til we’re called home and we’re caught up in the air we got

One world
I'll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
Together we can be perfect harmony
One world
I'll look out for you, you look out for me
One world
And I’m a dedicate this song to everyone of God's children

One world oughta be more than enough
And if its not, is God looking in pure disgust?
Wondering what the dilly with the silly I see?
When I made each of these in the image of me
Everyday is a chance for a new stance
Like every song is the beginning of a new dance
And everyone of us was made to reflect the light

And glorify the most high so bright
We got one world 'til its time to fly
So it's one love 'til we say goodbye
We got one world its enough to share
Til the king calls us home and we’re caught up in the air we got

One World...

Lets come together and love, Lets come together and love, Lets come together and love...
