Representative Text

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

Refrain:
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]
