“Morning Has Broken”
1. 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 world.
2. 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.
3. 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,
