The Christmas star pouring its light
on the world, glittering, clear and bright,
directed the way to God’s gift of love
by its brilliance shining down from above.
The radiance of that glowing star
beamed more brightly than the others by far,
but its glory could not begin to compare
to the light of love that shone everywhere.
That star’s light focused on a stable stall,
on a tiny infant, the Lord of all.
The light of hope that this Child would impart
flickers and glimmers in each beating heart.
The light of joy and love beams on,
spreading salvation to everyone
who open their hearts so the light may come in,
with faith that Jesus will cleanse every sin.
Like the star that sparkled that holy night,
God’s love continues to shed holy light
as the light of hope that came at Christ’s birth
is shared through the centuries across the earth.
