Song: One God
Artist: Barbra Streisand and Johnny Mathis


Lyrics1

Millions of stars placed in the skys
By One God
Millions of us lift up our eyes
To One God
So many children calling to him
By many a different name
One father
Loving each the same
Many the ways all of us pray
To one god
Many the path
Winding their way
To One God
Brothers and sisters there are no strangers
After his work is done
For your God and my God
Are one
So many children calling outloud
By many a different name
One father
Loving each the same
Many the ways all of us pray
To one God
Many the paths winding their way
To One God
Brothers and sisters there were no strangers
After the world was done
Our God, yes your God, and My God
Are one!

It's a new month, so I may as well start it out with one of my favorite songs. When I searched YouTube for this song, I looked for the one sang by Barbra Streisand, who is one of my favorite female vocalist. You can't imagine how happy I was to find that Ms Streisand and Johnny Mathis, one of my favorite male vocalist, sang a duet. I don't think this video is a traditional duet, I suspect it's a mix of the song sang at different times by each vocalist. This makes no difference to me because it is well done, with appropriate photos from the Holy Land of Israel.

I like this rendition the best because, for me, it symbolizes unity. The song, itself, embodies the concept of divine unity which goes beyond any one religion to take in all religions. It doesn't matter the religion or the name call God because there is only one God, who revealed all religions through many different prophets or manifestations.

This version of the song emphasizes both unity of humanity and the equality of men and women. The unity of humankind is shown through the fact that both a black and white vocalist sing the song. Gender equality is expressed through the fact that the vocalist are a female and male, with their voices complimenting each other.
