The closest thing I've ever written to a Christmas carol...Merry Christmas every day, everywhere.


Each Child is a Star   words and music by Kristin Lems

1. Baby Jesus was born in the hay

The townspeople turned his parents away

For the family was poor and had no place to stay

Just like a lot of folks living today

2. Now Mary was tired and cold

Far from her family and friendships of old

But she vowed to love her baby thru life's up & downs

Just like mothers the whole world around

3. And Joseph, he worked with his hands

Didn't own a house, didn't own any lands

And all he had came from the sweat of his brow

Just like a lot of men living right now

4. Now the baby and mother lay warm

In that poor shed, safe from winter's cold storm

And the stars in the sky looked down where they lay

Jesus and Mary asleep on the hay

5. There are babies being born every hour

Some are born rich, and many others born poor

But each child is a miracle, each child a star

And each one deserves all the best things there are

On Christmas and every day, each child is a star.
