Creative Brief

by Joel Sattler

As I was heading out
on the trail to the West
leaving behind my life
and the ones I love best

my father took me aside
on what was our final night
said remember this my son
keep the North Star on your right

North star
north star
though you may travel far
one thing remains the same
and this is the name
north star
north star

moving the wagons out
each man with gun in hand
ready to cross the plains
and reach our promised land

our women strong as could be
children hoping to see the sea
I on my horse arrived
wondering if we'd survive

north star
north star
two thousand miles to go
through blazing heat and snow
to where we did not know
north star
north star

someday we'll reach the pass
cross the mountains at last
coming down to the Bay
where we will kneel and pray

thanking the Lord above
blessing us with His love
although the road is hard
we trust the Northern Star

north star
north star
steady and shining white
guiding us through the night
with your eternal light
north star
north star
