morning has broken

sunday morning reflections 2014

morning has broken

early dawns light
fills the morning cove
calling the mists from the water
to rise with the sun

like the first morning

sparkling crystals
cover the morning meadow
fragments of the full frost moon

born of the one light

waking
to the brightening sky
the cove stirs with
wild geese rising

Eden saw play

sound of baby’s laughter
fills the early morning air
joy rises with the sun
*****
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 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 every morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Words by Eleanor Farjeon
Music traditional Scottish Gaelic tune
