Missions Songs

One Little Nation

| MUSIC SCORES (ENG) | MUSIC SCORES (BI-LINGUAL)

One little nation set in a sea,
One little nation
God built for you and me.
One spot of glory one spot of light,
that will grow and grow and grow
to bring His light.

CHORUS:
To many many peoples, tribes and tongues,
Throughout the generations; all around,
will be touched by His presence, forever changed,
By the glory of the risen One.

You’re a spark in a nation set in a sea,
you’re a spark in a nation
God built for you and me.
You’re one spark of glory, one spark of light,
that will grow and grow and grow to bring His light.

Quotation: The life of obedience starts the minute you get off your knees. You don’t get on your knees and say, “Lord, here I am: all of me for you forever,”; then start doing your own things. You say, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” and you go and do that thing now. God is not going to cll you to Ecuador today, that is, He doesn’t want you to go today. He might call you today. Maybe He’s already called you. But He does call you to do something today in obedience. Doing that thing puts you on the road to the will of God. You are already there. Your are in touch with God. That obedience will open the way for the next thing He calls you to do, and the next thing, and the next thing. –  Elizabeth Elliot
