Ep 39 “Song: Sarah Shining”

· A Little Birthday Song for a Sweet Six Year Old ·

Feb, 14, 2018

I wrote this song for one of my listeners when she was 6 years old. Well, she must be 12 years old today! This song is about shining with your heart – no matter what! A great song for your kids at bath time, bedtime, car time, and family time.

“Sarah Shining” by April Eight

Sarah it’s a lovely day
The wind blows cold and the skies are grey
Even the flowers are hiding away
But who cares for we have you,
Shining through.

Sarah smile for us.
Share the spark that shines from your heart
There’s nothing more that the world could hope for
Than the wonderful girl that is you,
Shining through.

Sarah happy birthday to you
Six years old, so much to be and do
Remember the light that shines in you
Can never go away,
Even on the greyest of days
You’ll shine through
Oh oh
You’ll shine through.

Happy 12th birthday, Sarah.
