Theme - planet Earth, the moon, space, beauty, guardianship, environment, nature, awe
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).
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.
