Starry Night by Nuttakit

“Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life—in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.” Philippians 2:14-16

The sun has set,

Dark velvet cloaks the skies;

Stars shine above me,

Glimmering before my eyes.


Glorious diamonds,

So many shining above me,

Countless stars shining,

How wondrous to see.


May I be like these, Lord,

May I shine like a star;

I long to give You glory,

I long to be as You are.


For surely You shine

Through day, through night;

Surely You are the Son,

Full of glory and might.


So dark is this world,

Darker than midnight sky;

So many are lost,

So many stumble and cry.


May I be a light unto them,

May I shine with Your love;

May I bring others hope,

Shining as a star above.


For what value do I bring

If Your love I do not give?

What hope do I have

If for You I do not live?


Here I am, my Lord,

Your vessel, Your child;

I am here to glorify You,

Make me holy and mild.


May Your virtues fill

My humbled heart and soul;

May Your light shine in me,

Light making me whole.


And Your light I shall share

With one and with all;

I shall show them Your truth,

I shall follow Your call.


Yea, shine like a star

I vow forever to do;

I lose myself entirely, Lord,

To reflect radiant You.


Jesus, You are the Son,

Full of glory and might;

You are Life, You are Love,

My Guide day and night.


I shall give You glory,

I shall be as You are;

I surrender all to You, Lord,

To shine like a star.


The countless stars shining

Are wondrous to see;

Yet none more brilliant than You,

So Jesus, shine through me.
