Description

An exciting, vigorous, red-blooded close-harmony arrangement of an old Shaker hymn. Perfect for Epiphany or even All Saints. "Camp-meeting"/shape-note style that adapts well to a number of voice-part distribution options.

Bright mornin' star's arising,
Day is a breakin' in my soul.

O where are our dear mothers?
Day is a breakin' in my soul.

They are down in the valley prayin',
Day is a breakin' in my soul.

O where are our dear fathers?
Day is breakin' in my soul.

They have gone to heaven shouting,
Day is breakin' in my soul.

Bright mornin' star's arising,
Day is breakin' in my soul.
