Christmas Stars

    “Christmas Stars,” Friend, Dec. 1971, inside front cover

    Christmas Stars

    Stars in the winter sky,

    Stars in the Christmas tree,

    Stars in the Christmas lights

    Twinkle joyously.

    Stars on the paper wrappings,

    Stars in the cookie dough,

    Stars shaped for candles—

    And stars in eyes that glow

    With happy expectation

    And joy that Christ’s own star

    Still is a shining beacon

    For glad hearts near and far.
