Daylight Breaking Lyrics

Angel baby cradles

Bright morning stars are rising
Bright morning stars are rising
Bright morning stars are rising
Daylight come a breaking in my soul

Where are our dear babies
Oh, where are our dear babies
Where are our dear babies
Daylight come a breaking in my soul

They are laughing in the heavens
They are laughing in the heavens
They are laughing in the heavens
Daylight is a breaking in my soul.

Where are our dear children
Where are our dear children
Where are our dear children
Daylight come a breaking in my soul

They are singing in the starlight
They are singing in the starlight
They are singing in the starlight
Daylight is a breaking in my soul

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

Background Information

This song is an adaptation of the traditional African American spiritual “Bright Morning Stars.” Bright Morning Stars are thought by many to represent angels.

The original song asks "where are our dear mothers?" and "where are our dear fathers?" I used the same structure but changed the questions and answers.

For the traditional lyrics, go to the Bright Morning Stars page.
