Text by Rabindranath Tagore, from "Fireflies".

A soulful rendering of Rabindranath Tagore's poetic aphorism: "Faith is the bird that feels the light, and sings when the dawn is still dark." An increasingly popular choice for festival and all-State choirs, this song features a rich alto solo, jazz and blues inflections, and a dazzling final chord.

Text: Faith is the bird that feels the light And sings when the dawn is still dark.
