The Power of One
Children's Song Lyrics and Sound Clip
Patricia Shih

The power of one (Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King)
The power of one (Marie Curie, Mahatma Gandhi)
The power of one (Betty Friedan, Frida Kahlo)
The power of one (Thomas Edison, Stephen Biko)

When you think of one what comes into your mind?
But don’t you know another way that one can shine
Unique and special, I say one-of-a-kind

Well I know you must be thinking “what can be done?”
Our problems, there are many, and I am only one”
I hear there’s strength in numbers when you want something done
But never underestimate the power of one

(Jackie Robinson, Mother Teresa)
(Harriet Tubman, Nelson Mandela)
(Louis Pasteur, Corazon Aquino)
(Helen Keller, Harriet Beecher Stowe)

One person is a power, one person makes a difference
One person sparked the start of civil disobedience
One can cast a vote and change the course of history
One can write a book and unravel a mystery

One can find a cure for devastating disease
One was all it took to inspire a peace
One invented telephones, one defied the gun
These and many more knew the power of one

(Pete Seeger, Rachel Carson)
(Aung San Suu Kyi, Abraham Lincoln)
(Cesar Chavez, Leonardo Da Vinci)
(Marian Anderson, Susan B. Anthony)

So never let anyone say you are not enough
There’s power in your spirit and there’s power in your love
There really isn’t anything that cannot get done
When you activate the power of one

(Benjamin Franklin, Frederick Douglass)
(Joan of Arc and Confucius)
(Clara Barton, Amelia Earhardt)
(Paul Robeson, Rosa Parks)
