lyrics, video of a song

I like the theme song to the Enterprise Star Trek series. I've been looking for positive songs to sing to my boys when I put them to sleep. I sing puff the magic dragon, Softly and Tenderly, Mercedeze Benz and The Times They Are A Changing. I occasionally chant a mantra. I want to add some more into the rotation. So here's one song I'm trying to memorize, and after that is the video.

It's been a long road
Get'n from there to here
It's been a long time
But my time is finally near
I will see my dreams come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they're not gonna hold me down no more
No they're not gonna change my mind

'Cause I've got faith of the heart
I'm going where my heart will take me
I've got faith to believe
I can do anything
I've got strength of the soul
No one's going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I've got faith
I've got faith
Faith of the heart

The following videos are extended versions of the song, I can't find those lyrics.

And here is the singer, Russell Watson, singing it live:

It's always nice to read that someone is looking for positive music for their kids!

Well, I work as a musician of dharma-inspired music. My second CD, 'Dharmasong', recently came out and I was wondering whether you might want to check it out and see if you have any interest in writing about it for your blog - I realize it might not be up your alley, but maybe you will like it - I hope so.

You can hear it at iTunes

Well, I hope this finds you well!

take care and I hope to hear from you,
