Music Monday- "No Not One"

This weekend, Trent bought me Christy Nockels' latest CD, Life Light Up. I listened to it for the first time this morning. Not only does it have some great songs we sing at The Ring, like "Hosanna" and "Marvelous Light", there's also this one... "No Not One"....

No better word than from Your lips
No perfect life than what You lived
No greater gift, no not one

No brighter star has ever shined
No better hope for all mankind
No higher mind, no not one

No one has ever known
This kind of love You've shown

There has never been a greater love
Than Your son
No, Not one
And there will never be a name above
No, Not one

With His life You have forgiven us
Hope has come
Hope has come
And there will never be a greater love
No, Not one

No image true or sweeter frame
No simple word can match Your name
No greater fame
No not one

No one has ever seen
The depth of Your majesty

No greater call - You gave us all a reason to live
No greater love - You gave us all a reason to give
No greater life - You gave us all a reason to shine
No greater love - forever mine!

I wish that I could say that these lyrics are always my focus and at the forefront of my mind. Sadly, life gets in the way sometimes and I tend to be more cynical. But, oh, how my heart desires to ALWAYS say "No, not one. There is not ONE thing more important than YOU in my life."
