A LITTLE BRIGHTER

Kathryn poses several timeless questions and then answers, “Because He chooses His stars to share all their light. Isn’t the sky a little brighter tonight?” Written for Kathryn’s fine youth choir, this song works in any season of the year.

LYRICS

How can it be? Who has the answer?
In this world as we know it, we must come and go.
Why is it so?

We learn to live, learn to love, learn to grow.
So why must we let it go?

Because He chooses His stars to share all their light.
Isn’t the sky a little brighter tonight?

There are so many things in the world that go unknown.
Why is it so?
There are no answers for the questions we sow.
So how do we let go?

Because He chooses His stars to share all their light.
Isn’t the sky a little brighter tonight?

But we can rest a little longer for the answer’s never far,
for every single angel becomes a shining star.

Though your days may be cloudy and your skies are grey,
for you we’ll pray.

Just remember the stars and you’ll know,
that’s why we must let go.

Look up, look up.

Because He chooses His stars to share all their light.
Isn’t the sky a little brighter tonight?
