YONDER COME DAY

Adapted from song written by Judith Cook Tucker. This song is based on traditional Georgia sea island spiritual with a rhythmic speech section. The song is about looking forward to a new day. 

1. All sing Part 1(C)
Yonder come day, day is a breakin’
Yonder come day, Oh my soul,
Yonder come day, day is a breakin’
Sun is a risin’ in my soul

2. Lows add Part 2(C)
Yon-der, yon-der, yon-der, yon-der
Yonder, yonder, Sun is a risin’ in my soul

3. Highs add Part 3(G)
Sun-rise, sun – rise , oh yonder
Sun – rise. Sun is a risin’ in my soul

4. Group RAP over hummed Parts 1 & 2 & 3

The trees are green and the air is sweet

The good Earth is singing underneath my feet,

Walking with my friends down freedom’s line

 Glad to be together and feeling fine

 

5. Repeat parts 1,2 & 3 with words

END: Repeat final line 3 times
