♬ Hope is a Star ♬

Hope is a star that shines in the night,
leading us on till the morning is bright.
When God is a child there's joy in our song.
The last shall be first and the weak shall be strong,
and none shall be afraid.
Lyrics by Brian Wren

My heart swelled as the children of the youth choir rang the hand bells as they sang the Advent hymn "Hope is a Star". That "none shall be afraid" is my fundamental prayer.

This young flutist from Strathroy United Church performs the hymn in a YouTube video.
