Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken
Like the first morning,

Black bird has spoken
Like the first bird.

Praise the singing!
Praise for the morning!

Praise for them springing
Fresh from the Word!

Sweet the rain's new fall
Sunlit from heaven,

Like the first dewfall
On the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness
Of the wet garden,

Sprung in completeness
Where His feet pass.

Mine is the sunlight!
Mine is the morning.

Born of the one light
Eden saw play!

Praise with elation,
Praise ev'ry morning,

God's recreation
Of the new day!

Lovely way to start a morning. Beautiful photos and text.

A while back (a long while), I used to love to play this on the piano because it was written in the key of C. No sharps or flats to stress over. Good memories.
