Within the garden of your heart
is a star that shines so bright,
through scorching heat of summer's sun,
or blanket darkness of the night.
Each one of us a shining star
moulded exquisite and unique;
and each one has a talent strong
buried in the spirit deep.
Put in a place that would ensure
a search through mud and mire...
To reach the shining, golden star
of our deepest heart's desire.
A brave and strong, courageous soul
needs armour bright and boldness fierce,
to survive the hardest tempest scourge
that with arrow once did pierce.
So climb the highest mountain peak
and tell the world there's a shining star -
in each and every one of us...
no matter who or where you are.
And let us all join hands around
the world, around the globe...
Renewing Faith, renewing Love,
and bringing peace - new hope.
