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 the 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 every morning 
God's recreation of the new day

I have always loved this song, but now it is my morning prayer of gratitude as I look out my window and see just how blessed I am to be alive!


  1. I had trouble commenting on your other blog~ But I wanted to say:
    I'm sorry to hear your house got destroyed, but man- what a comeback!! I love your kitchen! (and wow, how crazy are your cat's eyes in real life?? lol) What a fantastic job on the fireplace~ There's a silver lining to everything, huh? ☺ (and that puppy belly is definitely the CUTEST!!)
