Stand alone on the banks of some misty morning river
Fill your lungs with the joy of it
Hold your breath and feel your dreams beating with your heart
Donít count them, they rival the stars
Hold fast to golden moments

Plunge your hands into some cold running brook
Catch your hopes like diamonds in the water
Hold them up and memorize them
Donít count hopes, they come from stars
Hold fast to sparkling visions

Walk along the shore of some mighty ocean
Shout your passions above the roar of the sea
Taste their power as waves crash against the rocks
Donít count them, they burn like stars
Hold fast to deep convictions

When the journey overtakes your future
And you are perplexed, persecuted, abandoned
The cares of this world press hard
Donít count cares, they dim the stars
Hold fast to long fought faith

Kneel down in some fragrant field of flowers
Cast all your cares on Him
Listen as He illustrates His hopes, dreams, passions
(Do count them, star by star)
Hold fast and live now like you did then.
