“Stars In The Night”

After the events of this week, I felt it was important to end the work week with a positive uplifting post.  So I went through numerous books looking for the right inspirational piece but nothing spoke to me.

I did keep hearing a song in my head and decided I would share them with you.   The lyrics are about hope in the dark of night.  We all need reminded once in a while that there is hope.

Have a blessed weekend.

Stars In The Night/Barry Manilow

Look at the stars
How brilliant they are
How can they be shining now
When hope seems so far?

Look how they shine
These cruelest of stars
What promise inspires them?
What faith is it fires them?

Darkness grows
The world turns cold
And still there glows the light
Heaven knows
What hope they hold tonight

Look how they tease
These stars in the night
The darker the night becomes
The brighter their light becomes

Chill winds wail
The tempest brews
And clouds assail the sky
Through the veil
The stars refuse to die!

In this world
Of darkest night
Where hope is hurled away
There they are
And still there’s light
Oh so far
But will they…?
Dare they lift our hearts
As we lift our eyes
Are we fools to see
The hope that’s gleaming in the skies?
There’s the light!
Stars in the night!
