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

Morning has broken
Like the first dawn
Sing Hallelujah
A new day is born

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

Morning has broken
Like the first dawn
Sing Hallelujah
A new day is born
Morning has broken
Morning has broken
