Starlight, Star Bright

REFRAIN
Starlight, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight

Shine on beings of the earth
Make us worthy of our birth
Brighten paths through dark of night
That we might walk in truth and light

Shine on children everywhere
Keep them safe and free from care
Feed their bodies, souls and minds
That they might bless this world in kind

REFRAIN
Starlight, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight

Shine on animals and plants
Illuminate their lifelong dance
Light the land, the sky and sea
And all that share Life's mystery

Little beacon out in space
Shine upon the human race
Grant this humble, hopeful prayer
For peace to flourish everywhere

REFRAIN
Starlight, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight
