This heartfelt piece of remembrance shares a message of hope and inspiration. With text by Canadian poet Justin Zadorsky, When Dawn Shines is a moving addition to any Men’s Chorus festival or concert program.
“When the sun shines, my spirit will renew its gladness.”
When dawn shines, worry not your minds.
For, when the sun shines bright,
at last I shall master this fight.
Quiet now your hearts, and please no tears.
Now is the ending of my part,
as the light throws down all fears.
Tonight you watch in mournful sadness
but, when the sun shines,
my spirit will renew its gladness;
when dawn shines.
poem by Justin Zadorsky
