So long ago and far away
on starry night in bed of hay
a child was born and so it’s told
to save our world to shine as gold.

So many moons have passed since then
the earth has turned yet once again
and still our world seems dark and dull
full of cry and hate and gull.

For we forgot we all are sparks
a gift from God to light the dark
each child is here to keep the flame
of that one boy and in His name.

It’s up to us to make the change
to bring together the good and strange
to make the most of who we are
a world full of shining stars.

Love yourself and love your neighbor
always try to make life better
do it now and don’t delay
make today a brave new day.
