Christmas Stardust

Christmas card highsat2


The angels sprinkled stardust
o’er the earth on Christmas night,
filling every valley
with a holy, perfect light,

they mixed in bits of peace and love,
then stirred in hope and joy,
they added special blessings
for every girl and boy,

they filled the world with music,
a song so sweet and rare,
that folks put down their sorrows
and offered up a prayer,

they prayed for all the good things
the angels brought that night,
to fill the hearts of all mankind
with goodness, truth, and light,

they bowed their thankful heads
and prayed with all their might.
