The Christmas Star

The Christmas Star
Copyright 1996-Susie Whiting

Once upon a time
so very long ago
there was a little star in heaven
that had just a little glow.

The other stars laughed at him
they said it wasn't right
that he was there in the heaven's sky
when he didn't give much light.

The little star grew so sad
he felt his heart would break in two
so he asked his God in heaven
"Please tell me what to do.

How can I shine more glorious?
How can I grow more light
so I can be important and
light up the heaven's night.

He heard his Father speak to him;
a kind and gentle voice above.
"The secret little star of mine
is to love and love and love."

"Oh God my Father tell me
is that all that I must do?
Then it will be real easy then
I'll just love all as I love you.

Heavenly Father smiled at him
"Don't worry little son
if you love all, as you love me
for you a glorious time will come.

Years and years came and passed
and the little star did love.
His little light grew and grew
he was the brightest star above.

Then one blessed evening
so very long ago,
the little star was chosen
to cast its wondrous glow

over a little town called Bethlehem
above a lowly stall
to proclaim the birth of Christ the Lord
the newborn King of All.
