Star Child
Star Child, earth Child, go between of God,
love Child, Christ Child, heaven‘s lighting rod,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
Street child, beat child, no place left to go,
hurt child, used child, no one wants to know,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
Grown child, old child, memory full of years,
sad child, lost child, story told in tears,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
Spared child, spoiled child, memory full of years,
wise child, faith child, knowing joy in store,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
Hope-for-peace Child, God‘s stupendous sign,
down-to-earth Child, Star of stars that shine,
This year, this year, let the day arrive when Christmas comes for everyone, everyone alive!
Words: Shirley Erena Murray (Matt. 2:1-12)
Music: Carlton R. Young

I was looking for the lyrics today, too, and came across your post as I was searching. I hope this isn't finding too late in your inquiry, and that you enjoy them.

Just one quick correction to the line that begins "Spared child, spoiled child."  The next phrase is "having, wanting more..."

Spared child, spoiled child, having wanting more,
wise child, faith child, knowing joy in store,

Thanks for the lyrics.  Merry Christmas!
