More about Richard Tolbert:
I don’t come from a very musical family. I started playing saxophone in 7th grade. Thanks to a wonderful private lesson teacher and parents who sacrificed when times were hard, I discovered a passion for music. I went on to study music in college and earned a BA in Music from the University of Utah. I’ve been composing and arranging music in my spare time for over 15 years. Although I’m a sales professional by trade, I’ve never intended to try and make money off of my music. I simply compose for the love I have of sharing my music with those who want to use it.
Song background:

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, it disrupted a lot of things in our lives.  The ability to get together and make music was one that impacted me.  While not tragic compared to the challenges that others felt, it did cause me to take a long hiatus from composing new musical arrangements.  I thought that the message of hope and looking forward to better days found in The Day Dawn is Breaking was an appropriate one to do in order to come out of a musical slump.

Lyrics: 1. The day dawn is breaking, the world is awaking, <br/>The clouds of night’s darkness are fleeing away. <br/>The worldwide commotion, from ocean to ocean, <br/>Now heralds the time of the beautiful day. <br/> <br/>2. In many a temple the Saints will assemble <br/>And labor as saviors of dear ones away. <br/>Then happy reunion and sweetest communion <br/>We’ll have with our friends in the beautiful day. <br/> <br/>[CHORUS:] <br/>Beautiful day of peace and rest, <br/>Bright be thy dawn from east to west. <br/>Hail to thine earliest welcome ray, <br/>Beautiful, bright, millennial day. <br/> <br/>3. Still let us be doing, our lessons reviewing, <br/>Which God has revealed for our walk in his way; <br/>And then, wondrous story, the Lord in his glory <br/>Will come in his pow’r in the beautiful day. <br/> <br/>4. Then pure and supernal, our friendship eternal, <br/>With Jesus we’ll live and his counsels obey <br/>Until ev’ry nation will join in salvation <br/>And worship the Lord of the beautiful day. <br/> <br/>[CHORUS] <br/>
