Creator of the stars at night


  1. Creator of the stars at night,
    O, guide us with thy heavenly light;
    shine upon us to guide the way
    in darkest night through to next day.
  2. Creator God, who made this earth,
    created and knew us before our birth;
    in the wonders which you raise,
    we thank you and we sing your praise.
  3. Creator Spirit here, we pray,
    O come and re-new our hearts today;
    help us revere the universe,
    to care and tend our home this earth.
  4. Creator Lord, who once was slain,
    O, give us the courage to be the same;
    follow your ways in all we do,
    to ev'ry day be more like you.
  5. Upon this land the day draws in,
    and now the night time can begin;
    all the stars this night that shine
    reflect the glory that is thine.
  6. To God the Father, God the Son,
    to Holy Spirit, three in one,
    creation sings of the love to be
    found in you eternally.
