So long ago and far away
on starry night on 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 is dark with madness
full of cry and hate and sadness.
For we forgot we all are sparks
here from Heaven to light the dark
each child is born to keep the flame
aglow, eternal 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 tomorrow a better day.
