The Christmas Star THERE is a star in the sky, it is your star, Shining, twinkling, wherever you are, Silently glowing in the calm of the night, Guiding you, helping you, make you feel right, When you are lonely, frightened, angry or sad, hurt, upset, ill or act bad, When you feel there's no hope, and people are cruel, then remember your star - a precious jewel, That tries to sprinkle life into your heart, of love, peace and joy - feel the shimmering start, In the wonderful person you know that you are, as you sparkle with light and shine like your star, Remember this Christmas and all year through, take care of Earth's animals - they have a star too
