Morning Has Broken
Click on Icon to hear the tune
Morning has broken, like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken, like the first bird.
Praise for 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 dew-fall, 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 re-creation of the new day!
