"Stars" as written by Mindi Beth Abair and Matthew W. Hager....
You should see the stars tonight
How they shimmer shine so bright
Against the black they look so white
Coming down from such a height
To reach me now, you reach me now

You should see the moon in the flight
Cutting 'cross the misty night
Softly dancing in sunshine
Reflections of this light
Reach me now, you reach me now

And how could such a thing
Shine its light on me
And make everything beautiful again

And you should feel the sun in the spring
Coming out after a rain
Suddenly all is green
Sunshine on everything
I can feel it now, I feel you now

And how could such a thing
Shine its light on me
And make everything beautiful

And you should hear the angels sing
All gathered round their King
More beautiful than you could dream
I've been quietly listening
You can hear 'em now, I hear em now

And how could such a king
Shine His light on me
And make everything beautiful
And I wanna shine
I wanna be light
I wanna tell you it'll be all right
And I wanna shine and I wanna fly
Just to tell you now
It'll be all right, it'll be all right
It'll be all right.

'Cause I've got nothing of my own to give to you
But this light that shines on me shines on you
And makes everything beautiful, again.
It'll be all right, it'll be all right.

    General Commentthis is a beautiful song that has a rather poignant chorus.. when i first heard it i was slightly bemused by the verses (sun moon stars etc) but the moment Dave breaks out into "and how could such a thing shine its light on me..." i immediately thought of the Cross and of its apparent ugliness, within which is contained the profound ability to transform and unify humanity to God, through the power of what Jesus did.

    that was a revelation moment for me.

    General CommentThis song means so much to me.. It's my favorite song in the universe. This summer at camp, one of my fellow staff-members played it for me around a campfire and I just looked up at the Stars and thought.. it'll be alright. it'll be alright.

    General CommentThis song helps me remember why I haven't died of worry. It has such imagery that it's like watching a movie when I listen to this. When I listen to it I can't help, but smile cuz I can feel God's light shining on me and making me beautiful. Light helps plants grow and God is my light source:D
