When the Stars Sang

The bright stars of the Pleiades or The Seven Sisters
Job 38:6-7 New Living Translation (NLT)
6 What supports its foundations,
    and who laid its cornerstone
7 as the morning stars sang together
    and all the angels[a] shouted for joy?

Psalm 8:4-6 King James Version (KJV)
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?

5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.

6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
I uploaded to Youtube today the Appalachian folk hymn or spiritual, "Bright Morning Stars," this version sung by Abigail Washburn.  When God speaks from the whirlwind in the book of Job about his creation, He does so with authority, because He was there.  He heard the songs of the morning stars and the angels' shouts of joy.  It's amazing to consider that this same great God considers us.
