"The morning light is breaking"

"The Morning Light is Breaking" (Eddy #103)—words by George T. Angell, music by H. Kotzschmar. 
Written by the founder of the American Bands of Mercy, these words celebrate the morning when “darkness disappears” also as a metaphor for the “Bands of Mercy coming” (v.1) who march for “kindness and protection / To beast, and bird, and man” (v. 4).  This kindness is an additional metaphor for a global “reign of kindness” (v. 1) and “peace on earth appears” (v. 2).  With a fast rhythm with  sixteenth-note runs and an engaging melody, it is a fun song to sing.
