"Morning Has Broken" as written by Mark Stevens and Traditional,....
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 ev'ry morning
God's recreation of the new day

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

    General CommentActually, it's a slightly modified version of a hymn, when words writted by Eleanor Farjeon in 1931 and the tune based on a Gaelic melody known as Bunessan.

    MemoryI was at a funeral a year ago for my cousin and his family had set up a picture video on a TV and it had been playing an incredibly sad instrumental song and it wasn't until several months later, I heard "Morning Has Broken" on the radio and realized that had been the song in the video, so every time I hear this song, I think of my cousin, especially because his death hit so close to home to me.

    MemoryFind this a really beautiful song, it was played as one of the hymns at my mum's funeral and every time I hear this it kinda reminds me of that day. It's one of those songs that makes me feel sad but joyful at the same time

    General CommentMy wife of 22 plus years picked this as one of the songs at our wedding. I was one of those who basically said, "honey, plan the wedding the way you want it, I promise I will be there..." It was not until TODAY (12-8-2011) that, upon hearing this song, I finally listened to the words, then looked them up and...thank you sweetheart, you picked a perfect song, even if I just figured it out. You made me cry today. I Love you....
