The stars could not be silent
The day the Maker stirred
Throughout the vaults of heaven
Their song of praise was heard

God spoke light into being
And called the darkness night
And the stars sang of His wonders
As they echoed His delight

He said, “Let there be water
And the deepest bluest sky.”
And the stars in sweetest harmony
Sang anthems from on high

He called forth flowers and grasses
The tallest straightest trees
And the chorus of the stars’ song
Drifted on the breeze

A mighty light to rule the day
At night a sickle moon
And the stars sang their approval
With a glad and joyful tune

The sea was thick with fishes
The sky with birds o’erhead
And the stars’ uplifting melody
Across the heavens spread

God made so many creatures
That moved across the ground
And the stars sang out a symphony
A splendid, glorious sound

At last, his best creation
In his image, God made man
The stars sang on in wonder
As a precious love began

The Maker joined the stars’ song
And roared with deep delight
His music filled the heavens
And set the earth alight


Job 38: 3 – 4, 7 “Brace yourself like a man; I will question you, and you shall answer me. "Where were you when I laid the earth's foundation, while the morning stars sang together and all the angels shouted for joy?”

This is absolutely delightful! I love the idea of the stars singing along with creation. One day we will hear their song! My fav line: And the stars sang of His wonders/As they echoed His delight.

This is a wonderful poem! Great imagination!
Beth Muehlhausen09/01/06
I found this...comforting. Can't quite find the right word, that I think that one works. :-)

This was a favorite line: "the stars sang out a symphony
A splendid, glorious sound"

Nicely done!
Bonnie Derksen09/01/06
As I look at the stars tonight I will wonder if they still are singing! What a cool perspective on the days of creation. Thanks for your writing. Well done.
Helen Paynter09/03/06
This is very lovely - really repaid a second reading, too. Well done.

I liked this a lot, and I love the idea of the stars singing out. I think it would have worked with each new creation joining in with the stars, too. The rhythm and meter (is that the same thing?) flowed well.

Don't you just wonder what that sounded like? Awesome writing, very appropriately musical and song-like.
Joanne Sher 09/06/06
Just lovely - what an awesome poem for an awesome event. Thanks for making me "think on" this wonderful time.
Jan Ross09/07/06
I, too, will never look at the stars again without intently listening to hear their symphony! Beautiful! :)
Suzanne R09/07/06
I'd never thought about the stars singing ... thanks! Beautiful.
