Hope For The World: Peace Song of the Day for 9/21/2011

Wait Till The Sun Shines, Nellie” is the Peace Song for the Day, as chosen by Susanna, Duchess of Peace. You can find the words to this golden oldie, Barbershop song at Rise Up Singing on page 82.

What is it that makes this Barbershop Quartet song a sing-a-long, folk song? Probably, the way it expresses the hope of a better day, something that people who love peace and justice need to hold on to during these trying times.


Wait til the sun shines, Nellie
When the clouds go drifting by
We will be happy, Nellie
Don’t you sigh…


The Royal Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
