Into creation’s workshop
Before the night and day
God strode onto the scene
And flicked on the sun’s first ray
And paused to smile and sit awhile
As He watched the darkness flee
Then spread out all His many tools
And drew up plans for you and me
Next, God chose an unroofed stable
Where cows and chickens are
And in the center put a manger
So His Son could see the stars
Now through the long years of my life
That Hope still shines in me
And by starlight from so long ago
His face I clearly see
And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. Genesis 1:3 ESV

Shine on, star of Bethlehem.
Shine on, Lord Jesus!
I gathered that this was a song, so I went and found a lovely choral version. Thanks, and it is interesting how different people make all kinds of different connections through a poem.
Thank you, Deb.
