I looked around at the sky tonight,  

At the time just before the dark.

I looked to see the stars bright;

They always thrill my heart.



      I looked but the sky was bare.

      It seemed I looked in vain;

      As if there were no stars up there,

      At least none that were plain.



But then – What I “seeked,”

A pin-hole in the sky.

As if you had a bucket that leaked

And were searching the reason why.



     And then, close, another light appeared,

      “Couldn’t be far.”

      Two, to light the night –

      The duty of a star.



There must be many more out;

Now, the sky must be ablaze.

As these silently “shout,”

His glory and His praise.
