1. Ev’ry star is diff’rent,And so is ev’ry child.Some are bright and happy,And some are meek and mild.Ev’ry one is neededFor just what he can do.You’re the only personWho ever can be you.
A shining star, shining brightly,Not so very far, shining brightly;Be a shining star. Shine so brightly;Shine right where you are, brightly!
2. I can shine for othersAnd let them feel my love,Follow the commandmentsThat come from God above.I can help anotherTo learn to choose the right.Having faith and courageWill let my star shine bright.
