11961. Little Stars

1 Just as the stars are shining,
Making the darkness bright,
So we are shining, shining,
Shedding our golden light.

Shining, shining, shining,
Just like the stars above,
Making the world around us
Happy with light and love.

2 And as the stars are smiling,
Down on the earth below,
We may reflect the sunlight
Shining where’er we go. [Refrain]

3 Each in his little corner,
Whether at work or play,
We would be always shining,
Turning the night to day. [Refrain]

4 How could they do without us?
Dark would the world be then;
We are the Savior’s jewels,
Cheering the hearts of men. [Refrain]
