Worship singer Katy Weirich draws on the power of solidarity in “Just One” out now. A moving piece both instrumentally and lyrically, the track echoes an idea first found in Hebrews 12:28, “Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”
Encouraging listeners to offer praise together, she sings, “Just one note to sing, ‘I love you,’ one word to speak your praise. Just one spark to start a fire, all together we will raise up one voice.” While the words themselves are evocative, it’s Weirich’s voice that shines through as a telling testament to all of the passion she holds inside.
“This song is a reflection on the privilege it is that we even have access to come before God and worship Him. It is an expression of thanks for all that He has done, specifically in making a way for us to become His children by the sacrifice of His only son on the cross.”
Enlisting the help of multi-Grammy-winning songwriter and producer, Tedd T., “Just One” serves as a pre-cursor to Weirich’s upcoming EP, Out of the Blue. The record, which is very close to her heart, finds a humbled Weirich, driven by a spiritual fervour. She shares that this song is meant to help her and others realize “how big God is and how small we are.” In this way, the song is a reflection of “wanting so badly to give Him something in return while knowing that we honestly have nothing to bring.” Nevertheless, “Just One” invites listeners with loving devotion to give “our hearts, our thanks and our song of praise to His name.”
