Morning Has Broken

Verse 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 word

Verse 2
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

Verse 3
Mine is the sunlight, mine is the morning

Born of the one light, Eden saw play


Praise with elation, praise every morning


God’s re-creation of the new day
