“Light of Your World”

Star light star bright, I see how you shine,
Bringing hope for wishes of every kind.
But your guidance has brought more than considered,
Significance cherished when all hope has withered.

Whether saint or by angel your noteworthy cause,
Is justified truth, not neverland oz.
Your light written and witnessed, now proven true,
Leading men of great wisdom straight to the youth.

Granting directional focus, a long journey’s way,
To find that babe asleep in the hay.
The myth is no more the stories are real,
The son of man comes to break the seal.

The light of the star upon the light of our world,
Right then just a baby with tiny hands curled.
But the star shines bright for God’s only son,
Knowing battles ensuing are already won.

Its light everlasting and reaching afar,
Shines upon you wherever you are.
The same light of wisdom found that small babe,
And will shine even after the life that he gave.

Star light star bright, I see how you shine,
Even in the broken heart that is mine.
The wish to be had are the prayers that unfold,
The future he brings me in his hands to hold.

This evening I lift my arms to the sky,
To seek a wonder to rise upon high.
A light to be found within all the dark,
A promise greater than rainbows and arks.

A hope still to come but yet already here,
That will lead me home despite all of my fears.
