Morning Has Broken
C Dm G7 F C
Morning has broken like the first morning;
Em Am D7 G
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
C F G Am D
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!
G C F G C
Praise for them springing fresh from the Word!
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!
