Lord of the heart
Look down upon our earthly pilgrimage
Look down upon us where we walk
From bright dawn to old age
Give light not shed by any sun
Lord of the heart
Not read on any page
Lord of the heart

Before Lord God made the sea or the land
He held all the stars in the palm of His hand
And they ran through His fingers like grains of sand
And one little star fell alone

Then the Lord God hunted through the wide night air
For the little dark star on the wind down there
And He stated and promised, He'd take special care
So it wouldn't get lost again

Now a man don't mind, if the stars grow dim
And the clouds blow over and darken him
So long as the Lord God's watching over them
Keeping track, how it all goes on

But I've been walking through the night and the day
Till my eyes get weary and my head turns grey
And sometimes it seems, maybe God's gone away
Forgetting the promise, that we heard Him say

And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night
And we're lost out here in the stars
Little stars, big stars, blowing through the night
And we're lost
And we're lost
And we're lost
And we're lost
And we're lost out here in the stars
Here in the stars
