The earth’s bright glories fade to dark. Beyond—
The greater view that daytime never saw:
Tonight the drapes of heaven are pulled back
To hush the lowly world in speechless awe.
‘Mid bowing grass and silent trees I pause,
And cannot help but lift my eyes and gaze
Across the endless miles of darkened space
Where glittering stars have paved celestial ways.
A sudden blast of icy wind engulfs
The starry night and fills me with its thrill.
Yet in the winter night’s enchantment waits
A wonder more exhilarating still:
The One who fashioned starlight majesty
Is He who walks beneath the stars with me.
