How Many Stars are in the Sky Lyrics
Do you know how many stars
There are shining in the sky?
Do you know how many clouds
Every day go floating by?
God, the Lord, their number knoweth,
For each one His care He showeth,
Of the bright and boundless host,
Of the bright and boundless host.
Do you know how many birdies
In the sunshine sing each day?
Do you know how many fishes
In the sparkling water play?
God, the Lord, who dwells in Heaven,
Name and life to each has given,
In His love they live and move,
In His love they live and move.
Do you know how many children
Go to little beds at night,
And without a care or sorrow
Wake again with morning light?
God in Heav'n each name can tell,
Know us, too, and loves us well,
He's our best and dearest Friend,
He's our best and dearest Friend.
