There is No God But Jehovah

How many gods are there? None? One? An infinite number?

There are people who believe in each of these answers, and sometimes all three at the same time (or so the “all roads lead to Rome” folks claim, illogically).

But the truth is, there is only one God. One transcendent Being who has created the universe and all of us, and there is no other.

Yes, there are other powerful forces and beings that seem awesome to human beings in our limitations. But in the final calculation, there is just ONE God, and it is our choice whether or not to acknowledge and worship Him.

Isaiah 45:5-6

I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledge me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.

Exodus 20:3

You shall have no other gods before me.

Song Notes

I no longer remember precisely what it was that inspired this song. Most likely I was reading a book where the author was discussing the emptiness of trusting in other gods.

I DO however, recall sitting in the side backyard with my journal and a pen, this melody in my head, scribbling verses to figure out what would work with the rhythm.

As I (probably) meditated on those ideas, this melody came to mind, a somewhat sad, haunting melody because it’s kind of sad how so many of us put our trust in everything rather than the One True God. Including me, most of the time.

Anyway, this is what I came up with:

Lyrics

There is no God but Jehovah, all other gods are false
There is no power but His pow’r, for Satan’s He has trounced
So I raise my hand to the only God of the heavens and the earth
And on my knees, repenting, plead to the One I long to serve.

There is no name but Jesus’ name, no other one can save
The slaves of darkness, sin, and death, forgotten in the grave
O God of wonders, light and truth, please hear our broken plea
Forgive us for rebellion and let us be set free.

There are no gods, there are no gods, there are no gods but One
The Father in the heavens above, and Jesus Christ, His Son.

No Baal, Ashtoreth, Molech, Chemosh, can His glory steal
And Buddha, Brahma, Allah in a sense are no more real.
No scientism, so-called “Reason” can us truly sway
Behind this play are fallen angels and their own dead way.

What kills us are not gods of stone nor ideologies
But in our hearts of hearts we own pride that can’t be relinquished easily
We would rather beat at our flesh in pain, recite a thousand prayers in vain
Than fully call on Jesus’ name and be given our destiny.

Remove from me this idolatry that has settled in my core
Its pleasures, pains, temptations, claims, and you will be my only Lord
O God of wonders light and truth, please hear our broken plea
Forgive us for rebellion and let us be set free.
