"Morning Has Broken" by Eleanor Farjeon

"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 from the first Word.

"Sweet the rain's new fall sunlit from heaven.
Like the first dewfall in the first hour.
Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness from the first shower.

"Mine is the sunlight! Mine is the morning
Born of the one light Eden saw play.
Praise with elation, praise every morning
Spring's re-creation of the First Day."
