As Many As the Stars

I stand alone
Still staring at the sky
As many as the stars
So said Adonai

I’m just one old man
Without any child
Yet I do believe
His promises so wild

I believe
He’ll make of me
A people
Strong and free

A nation
Strong and bold
Will prove
His covenants hold

I stand here
In the night
Still wondering
At the sight

(Genesis 15:1-21)
