Shine On You Bright Star - Barry Evans

Shine on all you bright star – Lyrics / music - Barry Evans

 

In writing this song I wanted to create something that encapsulated the true meaning of Christmas but in a way that had commercial appeal. This song is extra special to me because it features my grandchildren. Joshua Evans does a fantastic job in the dialogue intro and William Evans does a brilliant solo vocal performance. Its not fully mixed and mastered yet and won't go on a Christmas album until next year but I hope you like this taster of the song.

 

Shine on all you bright star – Lyrics / music - Barry Evans

 

A strong wind blew, across the land,

the sheep in pastures bleating

My nights were long, my hands were cold

while the world lay in its sleeping

while the world lay in its sleeping

 

I heard about what was foretold,

the bright new morning star

a King, the Saviour of the world

and that night He took my heart

and that night He took my heart

 

A radiant light, the angel came

in my trembling I fell to my knees

he said "don't be afraid,

I bring good news, joy to the world"

then a choir of heavenly angels

sang sweetly those words

Immanuel, God with us

 

Chorus

 

Shine on, you bright star,

let the world know it's Christmas,

let them know that our Saviour

the prince and king has come

 

Shine on, you bright star,

let the world know it's Christmas,

let them know that our Saviour

the prince and king has come
