Bright Morning Star lyrics

by Cara Dillon

Bright morning star a-rising
Bright morning star a-rising
Bright morning star a-rising
Day is breaking in my soul

They are down in the valley praying
They are down in the valley praying
They are down in the valley praying
Day is breaking in my soul

[Instrumental]

Oh where are our dear fathers?
Oh where are our dear fathers?
Oh where are our dear fathers?
Day is breaking in my soul

They have gone to heaven shouting
They have gone to heaven shouting
They have gone to heaven shouting
Day is breaking in my soul

Bright morning stars are rising
Bright morning stars are rising
Bright morning stars are rising
Day is breaking in my soul
