You Can’t Count the Stars

with one comment

          “You Can’t Count the Stars.”

Genesis 15:5          Philippians 4:1          Judges 5:31

         You can’t count the stars.

         You can’t count the blessings.

    God has in store for you,

         and his promises are true.


    You have not heard

         God’s holy Word

     if you don’t believe God loves you,

    Longs for you his crown!

    Love for you made him come down.

 

    The cross is the direction

      of Christ’s holy resurrection.

 

    Don’t be its enemy.

    Let Jesus set you free.

 

    You can’t count the stars.

         You can’t count the blessings.

    God has in store for you,

        and his promises are true.

 

    God’s friends become

        just like the Son,

    rising in all its splendor.

         Rise and shine,

             It’s wake-up time

    Trust God and surrender.

 

    The love of God, so rich and pure.

    It’s the only thing, of which we’re sure.

    I long for you, my joy my crown,

    to raise you up, is why Christ came down.
