You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Ao amanhecer

Language: Portuguese (Portugu√™s)

Cantai, cantai, alegres passarinhos!
Abri as asas pelo azul a fora;
Deixai os quentes ninhos
Que já brilha no céu a luz da aurora.

Já não tarda surgir o sol radioso
Que vem tonificar com seus ardores
E encher de luz e gozo
A natureza e as orvalhadas flores.

Deixai o vosso tépido agasalho
Ó joviais e bons madrugadores,
Que às lides do trabalho
São horas de chamar os lavradores!

Cantai, alegres aves matutinas.
Cantai hosanas à fulgente aurora
E as formosas campinas
Enchei de vossa música sonora.

Amanhece de todo. Oh! Minha musa
Solta o vôo também por esses ares
E despe de reclusa
O frio manto cheio de pesares.

Vamos cantar! As sombras da tristeza
Foram-se em frente ao matinal clarão.
E como a natureza
Festivo me palpita o coração.

Cantai, alegres aves matutinas,
Cantai hosanas à fulgente aurora
E as formosas campinas
Enchei de vossa música sonora.
