Bright morning stars are rising,
Bright morning stars are rising,
Bright morning stars are rising;
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
Oh, where are our dear fathers?
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
They are down in the valley praying;
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
Oh where are our dear mothers?
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
They have gone to heaven shouting;
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
Oh where are our dear children?
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
They’re upon the earth a-dancing;
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.
Bright morning stars are rising,
Bright morning stars are rising,
Bright morning stars are rising;
Day’s a-breaking in my soul.

"I sang this song with our "Turkey Choir" a couple of years ago. This is an AMAZING song. One of the most powerful musical experiences I have ever had. At "They have gone to heaven shouting" it literally takes my breath away. Wonderful and profound! My life is better for having performed this music. I can't recommend it highly enough!!!"
