When we no longer face the sun,
But the moon shines from on high,
One million tiny, shining stars
Light up that dark night sky.
Their twinkling, scintillating beams
Dispel the shades of night,
But you will see but few of them
Beneath that city light.
Our lights erase the Milky Way -
A truly wondrous sight.
The glory of the heavens above
Is devoured by all our light.
Some stars, so very far away,
We humans cannot see,
But, through a giant telescope,
They’re revealed to you and me.
We wonder if, quite far away,
Another human face
Looks down upon our Planet Earth
From far, far out in space.
When men set foot upon the moon,
They looked from outer space
And said our earth looked beautiful -
A really special place.
We too can now look down on earth,
Filmed from far away
And watch from space the world revolve
Throughout the course of day.
Our lovely world is shimmering blue
With lace-like pretty cloud
And, to live our lives in such a place,
Should make us very proud.
Instead of wreaking grief and death
Through human, warring ways,
You’d think that every single day
We’d want to shout our praise.
