Some Rain Must Fall

Some Rain Must Fall is the first piece in the two-piece set entitled A Rainy Day which explores deeper meanings of rain. With text from Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "The Rainy Day," Some Rain Must Fall beautifully captures Longfellow's poignant message that, even though dark and dreary days inevitably come, they won't last forever, for "behind the clouds is the sun still shining!"

This piece is ideal for University or advanced High School choirs

Text

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall,
And the day is dark and dreary.

My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary.

Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.
