I looked out o’er the rooftops nigh
And spied a shining star on high
It shone so bright the whole night through
And challenged all the lore I knew.
If I had been so ever smart
It might have quelled an anxious heart
But as it is I question why
This star above is in my sky ?
Perhaps the Lord wants us to know
This universe does grow and grow
Thus pose to us this mystery
What else is there for us to see ?
