lyrics

PRELUDE TO THE SUN

Out of the darkness
Shining above me
Brighter than morning
You are the sun
Naked as music
Gentle as rain is
You are the song
That wakes up my heart
Naked as music
Gentle as rain is
You are the song
That wakes up my heart

Prelude to the morning sun
You are the chorus
Bringing in the dawn again
Love is shining
In the glorious morning
Singing in my heart
Love is shining
In the glorious morning
Singing in my heart
