    Every Star Is Different

    Cheerfully

    (Optional obbligato for piano, bells, flute, etc.)

    1. Ev’ry star is diff’rent,

    And so is ev’ry child.

    Some are bright and happy,

    And some are meek and mild.

    Ev’ry one is needed

    For just what he can do.

    You’re the only person

    Who ever can be you.

    [Chorus]

    A shining star, shining brightly,

    Not so very far, shining brightly;

    Be a shining star. Shine so brightly;

    Shine right where you are, brightly!

    2. I can shine for others

    And let them feel my love,

    Follow the commandments

    That come from God above.

    I can help another

    To learn to choose the right.

    Having faith and courage

    Will let my star shine bright.
