lyrics

Counting Stars

Have you ever felt the calling of the wind
Where you pack your bags and heart for everything
On a border town I laid my eyes on you
Drawing water from an ancient wishing well
Felt love that day which shone onto my soul
To reap the crop of those already sown

Midnight stars I know your names
I counted you through endless days

The doldrums stayed the seasons never end
Your patience wilts the hunger endless prayer
Does hope still count when love has lost its way
Like dormant seed the rains of spring await

Midnight stars I know your names
I counted you through endless days
Upon this hill I sit and pray
Now count on you to light my way

This beauty of this land I couldn’t trade
Like a basket full of bread for those who wait
Beyond the bush a bird flew in my hand
Then I saw your face on a tiny grain of sand

Midnight stars I know your names
I counted you through endless days
Upon this hill I sit and pray
Now count on you to light my way
