Stars

Memories of brighter days
Flicker in the night sky
Alight with wishes of the past and
Surrounded by the black of present

What beauty can there be in this
These relics of the past
So distant, so cold and yet
So surrounded by the infinite

Of eternal, distant black

A reminder, not of past but of
Future lays here in
For in that distant sky,
Burning bright with stars, we see

Hope, of tomorrow
Etched across the heavens as
He labors, above it all
Reigning, over everything

The King of Heaven, and of earth
Who knows each star by name
Therein, that sky has written in
A memorial, to His great Name

For distant stars, were formed by Him
Eternal darkness, where He walks
Each light, He knows by name and
Each figure formed by His hands

So when we look, up to the sky
Be not saddened by the past that once
Dwelled beneath these stars
Nor be troubled, for tomorrow or

Frightened for today by
Endless, mysterious black, or by
Those distant twinkles of light, that seem
To dim as days go on

Instead remember, the One who formed them and
Knows each one by name
And He who knows, that infinite blackness
And holds eternity in His hands

Take these memories, of past and
These reminders of the infinite
And see in them, the peculiar glory
Of Him, who bid them to shine and

Placed them there in, those Heavens vast
Exactly where He willed
For His purposes, for His plans, they shine
And He knows them all by name

Just as we, here on the earth
Are too made, and formed by His hands
For His plans, and purposes
May we submit, as they in Heavens do

To shine, for Him alone

And in our shining, in our obedience find
Peace, like no other as
We meet, face to face the One
Who knows each star by name

And too, knows us the same
May we revel, in His majesty
Now and forevermore
He who hung the stars, and too

Would come to us, and make a way
That He could
Know us the same
Through His Son, the eternal born of Heaven who

Died upon a tree

And rose again, in victory
To stars above(‘s) delight
To break, the bonds of hell and
Shatter powers of darkness

How marvelous is He
What a King, what a Savior
May we praise Him, forevermore
And remember Him, as we see

Those lights, hung in the Heavens
May we praise Him who holds them there
And too has redeemed us
That wonderful Savior, the everlasting God

May we praise His name forevermore!
My God we cling to You!
