The Twelve Days of Christmas



A STAR SHOWN IN THE SKY—221 words
By Sue Frye


On the first day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The birth of our lord is magnified.

On the second day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The angels sung a joyful lullaby.

On the third day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The birth of a savior is nigh.

On the fourth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
A sign unto Shepherds camping bye.

On the fifth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
A savior is born from on high.

On the sixth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
To the manger where the baby lie.

On the seventh day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Wise men journey near to edify.

On the eighth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Animals come in wonder and awe.
 
On the ninth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The blessed babe does not cry.
 
On the tenth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
The foretold event is satisfied.

On the eleventh day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Peace on Earth is gifted hereby.

On the twelfth day of Christmas, a star shown in the sky
Bringing joy to the world in a sigh.
