STARRY STARRY NIGHT

 


on a cold wintry night
sparks of his historical birth

warmth of innocence that night
touched every grain of desert sand

a saviour there lay at night
happy the word for his coming 

silencing the winds of the night
into the light of a thousand stars

yet brighter shone in the night
his manger star a guiding light
