A Carol for the Sunrise

Sunrise Carol  by Daniel Elder


Sunrise at our friends’ cottage at Jessica Lake

Silence preceding the moment of morning,

dawn on the negev desert

Dawn on the Negev Desert in Israel

Nature is napping ere dawning of day,

sunrise praia da luz

Sunrise from our kitchen window in Praia da Luz Portugal

dim glow the stars after night sky adorning,

All Earth prepares to tuck twilight away.

Last night we attended a concert called Mosaics performed by the Sonolux Choir at Young United Church.  One of the many beautiful songs they sang was Sunrise Carol by Daniel Elder.  I loved the words.  They reminded me of some of the sunrises I have watched.
