    Shining Star

    1. If I had lived in Galilee
    Or walked Jerusalem’s road,
    Followed Jesus by Jordan’s sea,
    Would I have tried to lift His load?
    2. I wonder what my thoughts
    If I had seen the shining star
    If it had been my happy lot
    To hear the angels from afar.
    Would I have followed wisemen
    With a loving gift of mine,
    To a stable in Bethlehem
    Leaving all else behind?
    O silent skies, so full of light,
    Shine peace on this world tonight.
    Let hate and envy, grief and wars
    Be hid forever beneath shining stars.
