Way Up In The Heavens


Way up in the Heavens
The stars are shinning bright
They are the eyes of Angels
Watching over us tonight

At times they flicker
And often they do blink
If you watch closely
It's as if an Angel winked

And when the clouds roll past
Between the stars and you
It almost seems as if
they are playing peek-a-boo

Yes way up in the Heavens
The stars are shining bright
Trying to help us all
To tell wrong from right

Sometimes there are stars
That come tumbling to Earth
To bring us a falling Angel
To help us like a new birth

Then we have bigger stars
Like the moon and sun
To let us know a days beginning
And when the day is done

Then we have the symbols
Like the dippers and such
Showing there is something greater
And we all know we'll need His touch

So watch those stars tonight
And remember these very words
Though it may sound loony
Or, crazier than the birds

But the stars are watching you
No matter where you are
Guiding you on your way
As if They are driving your car

Yes way up in the Heavens
The stars are Heavens eyes
Watching everything we do
Like Heavens little spies

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
