Abstract: In this paper we show that a one-relator graded Lie algebra $ \mathfrak{g} = L/(r)$, over a principal ideal domain $ K$, has a homogeneous ideal $ \mathfrak{h}$ with $ \mathfrak{g}/\mathfrak{h}$ a free $ K$-module of finite rank if the relator $ r$ is not a proper multiple of another element in the free Lie algebra $ L$. As an application, we deduce that the center of a one-relator Lie algebra over $ K$ is trivial if the rank of $ L$ is greater than two. As another application, we find a new class of one-relator pro-$ p$-groups which are of cohomological dimension $ 2$.
