About the Song:
“‘All the Stars’ is a song that describes the covenant promises God made to Abraham in Genesis. We often skip over these intimate and huge promises that the God of the universe made to a normal man. Abraham’s story is a perfect example of how the intricate details of our stories fit into the overarching Story of God.”
You followed me out to desert places
Leaving all familiar faces
To a land I will
Show you, promise you
Lift your eyes and look around you
Know my promise will be found true
All the land you see
Will your children’s be
And all the stars in the big, big sky
And all the sand in the ocean’s wide
Will not outnumber, will not outnumber you
All the people in the big, big world
All the nations of the earth
They will wonder, they will wonder at you
From your blood shall come kings
My covenant will be steadfast and free
From you shall come many nations
They will be my lot, and I will their God
