STARS ARE SHINING is a compilation of parts written by my brother David, my mom, Jennie, and myself. When I was 9 years old I wrote the verse and chorus (the part I sing), and when David was around 5 years old he wrote the part that he is singing. Mom took those pieces, added her own and arranged it. We finally recorded it after all these years in response to the many requests we've received. .

This is our yearly caroling song and has been so much fun... This recording was taken from the compilation album LOVE CAME DOWN featuring several other artists and can be found here in it's entirety here:



Stars Are Shining
by Emily, David, and Jennie Lee Riddle 1998

The beauty, the beauty of the Lord
The loving, caring child is born
The little babe is fast asleep
in a bed of hay
The boy that I will love is born
in Bethlehem todoay

Alleluia, Jesus is born
Alleluia, I'll live forevermore
Alleluia, for the Son of God
Alleluia, Christ Jesus is born

Stars are shining
Stars are bright
Sarts are twinkling
through the night
Little beacons of God's light
Shining through the dark of night
