Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
His legacy
A NEW STAR IN THE SKY  
THERE'S A NEW STAR IN THE SKY TONIGHT
WE CAN SEE ITS LIGHT SHINE BRIGHT
IT'S A SIGN OF HEAVEN'S GIFT RECEIVED
AND THE END OF SAMUEL'S PLIGHT

OUR DEAR LORD WORKS IN MYSTERIOUS WAYS
TO SHOW US HIS GREAT CONCERN
IT IS SAID HE GIVETH AND HE TAKES AWAY
IN HIS LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

HE GRACED THIS FAMILY WITH A SON
TO INSTILL BOTH LOVE AND  PRIDE
THEN DECICED IT WAS BEST
THAT HIS FUTURE BE DENIED

IT MY BE HARD TO COMPREHEND
WHY OUR LORD WOULD TAKE THIS CHILD
BUT WHO ARE WE TO QUESTION
WHO GODS' SON WANTS BY HIS SIDE

FOUR MONTHS OF PAIN AND PLEASURE
MIXED EMOTIONS, PRAYER AND AWE
DISAPPOINTMENT SHARED BUT BLESSED INDEED
IN THIS CHILD YOU HELD AND SAW

CHILDREN ARE OURS LORDS' DELIGHT
BLESSED THE INSTANT THEY ARE BORN
FOR REASONS ONLY HE MAY KNOW
SOME FROM FAMILIES MUST BE TORN

DO NOT LET LOSS FORSAKE YOUR FAITH
OR ALLOW YOU TO FEEL SCORN
BUT TAKE THIS STUMBLING BLOCK IN STRIDE
USE IT AS YOUR STEPPING STONE

ALLOW YOUR FAITH TO LEAD YOU 
TO UNDERSTAND HIS WILL
FOR YOU WERE BLESSED TO KNOW THIS CHILD
SO IN CHRIST YOUR LOVE INSTILL

SO PRAISE THE LORD ALMIGHTY
NEVER DOUBT HIS REASONS WHY
TAKE COMFORT WHEN YOU RAISE YOUR EYES 
TO THAT NEW STAR IN THE SKY
