Light a Star to Guide Us


Sometimes I wonder why you seemed to take so long
to send a saviour to our earth when things had gone so wrong.
So many years of killing, of terror for the young,
hatred and destruction, so little hope left hung
on a star,
some were still watching
and they noticed when you came
some knew where to find you
and some even knew your name.

But it’s been such a long time since
and we bow our heads in shame
for after all you did for peace
it seems we’re still the same

And I wonder why you’re waiting now
and what you are waiting for
If you’ll soon stop all the killing,
all the terror like before.

Will you light a star to guide us
will you bring us peace again
will we know where we can find you
and will we know your name.
