Content  -  This song expresses awe and wonder at the beauty of Earth, as seen from the point of view of the moon, which is imagined as a benevolent character watching over the world. Imaginative lyrics are set to a beautiful, lyrical melody. Ideal if you have a strong soloist, but also perfect for general singing or lovely as a set piece for junior choir (unison, apart from a few bars of very simple optional harmony).


Lyrics sample

Looking down now from the night sky,

I spy on your world.

Watching the way that the people are living

Thousands of miles from my home.

So many different faces,

Places that I see.

Animals roaming: it looks so amazing!

Wishing that it could be me.

Even though I’d love to be there,

I must shine so bright.

I will try to keep you safe by

Smiling through the night.

I am smiling for you. I am shining for you.
