With a falling evening, and the night coming,
with this day saying goodbye;
as the sun goes into hiding,
there is a star in my eye--
As the stars begin to dot the ever darkening sky,
I wonder how far I've come in this life.
A star to brighten my outlook and to decorate
my eye, as it, in turn, decorates my face;
now I feel better inside my heart, now
that it does decorate.
Oh, star, I give thee thanks!!
For the snakes of earth, men, do think
that they shall cage me in their cage,
to meet my demise in the coming days.
But through my God I will only surely remain,
a leader among men, a governor.
