A Distant Star
The stars are out tonight
They are shining, oh so bright
As I look, I see a distant star
Dear Lord, it seems so very far.
I wish I could pray to have wings of my own
I want to hide, to be alone
If I went to that distant star to understand
Will I find myself, see where I am.
I want my tears to blow away in the breeze
Jesus will You catch them please,
Yet, if I went to Heaven today
Maybe that distant star will go away
Will tug at their heartstring, if they softly call.
Shall I be forgotten without my name upon a stone
Will I always be left here all alone'
But if I go to that distant star,
Then Heaven is my home
With the Lord Jesus, I will never roam.
I will never go away again
nor will I ever say
this is the end believe me
and I will never be alone again
I will no longer hide from my mistakes
I ask forgiveness for the cost I take,
I am blessed with a God who forgives my heart
He who is on a distant star.
Will never be alone again
and I will never be alone again.
