Christmas Star Gift



These are the words to "Star of Bethlehem" that I will be attatching to the little Christmas Star ornament that I will be giving as gifts.

The Star of Bethlehem

By Sally DeFord

High above the weary world, amid the stars of heaven
To men of old a wondrous sign of peace and hope was given
A brighter star was kindled there, to reign among the skies
To mark the way to Bethlehem and everlasting light
And high above the weary world, for eyes to see that will
The star of Bethlehem will shine for those who seek him still

High above the weary world it shone upon their road
And thus it led the wise men on, to seek a poor abode
And is there now no humble home to which its light may lead?
No quiet need? No tears of grief? No hungering soul to feed?
Look high above the weary world -- for eyes to see that will,
The star of Bethlehem will shine for those who seek him still

High above the weary world his star still shines for me
It bids me seek the Holy Child, adoring on bended knee
It beckons me through ages past, by countless years undimmed
It bids me serve his children now, thus to worship him
And high above the weary world, for eyes to see that will
The star of Bethlehem will shine for those who seek him still.

This is stunning! I can not even begin to imagine how many hours went into creating this. I sent you an email about this piece as well. Thank you for sharing the story (and your talent!!!!)

You know what they say about old friends and antiques? They grow more valuable with time.

Glad that you dropped by my blog!

This blog and it's contents go hand in hand with my Visiting Teaching Tips and handouts blog found at http://visitingteachingtips.blogspot.com/ If you by accident get to this blog first, make sure to go back to the other one and see all that there is for you there. This is sort of my overflow or stroage blog because I can't keep everything there, so I add my creations to this storage unit and that is my Visiting Teaching Surprise for you. Sometimes however, I do put in things that I think you would enjoy even if they aren't specifically related to Visiting Teaching, but my vision in life is that if I take all the time to make things, I may as well share them and get more use out of them. Sorta like hand me downs but brand new "Down loads". I hope you enjoy these freebies. Drop me a note to say hello in the comments under the downloads posts.
