Little star up in the night sky,
shining brightly over earth,
when we see you we remember
stories of a special birth.
Of a child born with a message
that would challenge status quo,
and reveal God’s presence with us
as we live and as we grow.
Gazing upwards to the dark sky
wonder opens up our mind,
recognising a connection,
sensing lives are intertwined.
We are one with all creation,
we are one and not apart,
born in love and with a purpose
to recall God in our heart.
Jesus brought this special message,
he revealed the special love
that is part of all creation,
God within us not above.
With this message life can flourish,
and with hope the earth be healed,
so, we thank the God of all things
for the love the star reveals.
