Download Lyrics

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

Where are our dear mothers
Where are our dear mothers
Where are our dear mothers
Day is a breaking in my soul

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

Where are our dear fathers
Oh, where are our dear fathers
Where are our dear fathers
Day is a breaking in my soul

They are in the valley praying
They are in the valley praying
They are in the valley praying
Day is a breaking in my soul.

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

*Also sung as “Daylight”

Verses can also be combined as in the following version

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

Oh where are our dear fathers?
Oh where are our dear fathers?
They're down in the valley a-praying
Day is a-breaking in my soul

Oh, where are our dear mothers?
Oh, where are our dear mothers?
They've gone to heaven a-shouting
Day is a-breaking in my soul

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

Background

Bright Morning Stars are Rising is a traditional American folk song/hymn from the Appalachian region. Bright morning stars are popularly thought to refer to angels.

To make this a lullaby I change the verse after “Where are our dear mothers” to “They are singing to their babies” and the verse after “Where are our dear fathers” to “They are rocking babies and praying.”
