Morning Has Broken                                                                                 ELW 556

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!

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 God’s 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 of the new day!
