Artist Narrative:

Far beyond the stars
my soul is longing to go.
There, beyond the sun
To a better place, I know.
Through the darkest night
I can see the heavenly glow:
Far away beyond the stars
Far away beyond the stars...

Jeanine Deckers (17 October 1933 – 29 March 1985), known in English as The Singing Nun, was a Belgian nun, and a member (as Sister Luc Gabriel) of the Dominican Fichermont Convent in Belgium. She became internationally famous in 1963 as Sœur Sourire (Sister Smile) when she scored a hit with the French-language song "Dominique". In the English-language world, she is credited on her records as "The Singing Nun." 

This paper-cutting by Dan Paulos is of Our Lady singing the nuns' song: 

FAR BEYOND THE STARS

MY SOUL IS LONGING TO GO.

THERE, BEYOND THE SUN

TO A BETTER PLACE, I KNOW.

THROUGH THE DARKEST NIGHT

I CAN SEE THE HEAVENLY GLOW:

FAR AWAY BEYOND THE STARS

FAR AWAY BEYOND THE STARS....
