Let the night’s darkness
turn into the light of the sunrise.
Let it shine through
the windows of houses, buildings,
and barns.
Let the farmers start milking,
let the clouds float in.
Let sunrise come.
Let the children flood
into school.
Let the babies make messes
with their breakfast.
Let sunrise come.
To the lazy cats,
to the active puppies,
to the croaking frogs,
let sunrise come.
Let the roosters call
cock-a-doodle-doo as everyone
wakes up to their alarms.
Let it come
and let it be bright,
let sunrise come.
