The Child and the Star

1. Little star that shines so bright,
Come and peep at me tonight,
For I often watch for you
In the pretty sky so blue.

2. Little star! O tell me, pray,
Where you hide yourself all day?
Have you got a home like me,
And a father kind to see?

3. Little Child! at you I peep
While you lie so fast asleep;
But when morn begins to break,
I my homeward journey take.

4. For I've many friends on high,
Living with me in the sky,
And a loving Father, too,
Who commands what I'm to do.
