STARS AT NIGHT - A FOLD
Most highest high, pass the stars at night,
A wondrous love dwells above the clouds.
Born again by water thus, our birthright,
There in the upper room sealed his desire;
For each one of us, pass the stars at night,
Of fire given through our friend and brother,
With tongues, gifts universal set he the sight.
The Word to be told, the Word to be light,
Guiding those lost out of places dark to safety;
Serene pasture of verdant providence in reach,
Of each one of us, pass the stars at night.
