Poet's Corner: Morning Has Broken

Morning Has Broken

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

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 every morning,
God’s recreation of the new day.

Eleanor Farjeon (1881 – 1965)

Who will be singing this song in church on Easter Sunday? IT IS ME
