On a snow crystal morning
Some place close to heaven
On the side of a mountain
In a race for the sun

In a matter of moments
The dream of a lifetime is won
There's a fire in the heart
And it feels like the hunger

The spirit is burning
Consumed by the flame
To be one of the best
Of the best in the world
Is its name

To be faster and farther
Than anyone's ever before
To be braver and stronger
And truer and then even more

To be all that you can be
And all that you've ever longed for

In the eyes of a mountain
All people are equal
In the eyes of all people
Our souls can be seen
In the course of our struggle
We'll know what humanity means

To be all that you can be
And all that you've ever longed for

We gather together
To face one another
We gather in silence
And sing in the sun
We gather in peace
To go for the gold and beyond
