Journey On

This song is about "confidence".  Our confidence comes from knowing who we are and whose we are.

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face.  You are able to say to yourself, “I lived through this horror, I can take the next thing that comes along”… You must do the thing you cannot do.” Eleanor Roosevelt

That quote is the specific inspiration for the last verse.


Journey On

Words and music by Richard Hill

Long as you are out here in the weather

Wondering where the path went in this dale

Pause for just a moment and consider

What the world around you has to tell.

Not every bird will fly south in the winter

Some will find a home in snowy cold.

Home is where you find the things that matter.

You choose the path to your own home…journey on…


Ev’ry flower blossoms with distinction

Ev’ry blossom has a purpose in the field.

Ev’ry plant a gift to the creation

Ev’ry gift longs to be revealed.

Gardens filled with flowers wild or cultured

Flourishing where’re they hit the ground

Roots reaching deep, blossoms sunward

You choose to blossom where you’re sown…journey on…


Every moment, every motion

Every thought and every word

Holds the seeds of two tomorrows

Which will you leave on earth?


If you stand in fear before the mountain

If you freeze in terror on the path

Your breath is gone and your heart a-thundered, pounding

Destiny a harsh and angry blast.

Ev’ry hill that’s conquered helps you climb the higher mountain

Ev’ry terror faced helps you dare the great unknown

Courage triumphs over fear and moves the fearful forward

You choose the path you triumph on…journey on…
