    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, and so we will.

    Hi,

    Which one is the correct sentence below here?


    1.
    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, and so shall we.

    2.
    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, and so must we.

    3.
    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, and so we will.

    4.
    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, let's we rise and shine as well.


    Which one makes sense and sounds better to you?

    I want to say that when the sun rises and shines tomorrow, we will/ must rise and shine too or let's we we rise and shine too. But does it sound repetitive to you? So I want to make it shorter and poetic.

    Thanks.

    Re: When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, and so we will.

    None of them is correct.

    'When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, so shall we.'

    Variations: '. . .so will we' and '. . .so must we'.

    Thanks, Rover.

    How can I correct the option 4 below if I want to use let's we [do something]?

    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, let's we rise and shine as well.

    Thanks.

    When the sun rises and shines tomorrow, let's we rise and shine as well.
    Delete we, as let's means 'let us'.

    It would be better to say 'When the sun . . . let us do the same'.
