Morning Has Broken

Morning has broken Like the first morning,
Black-bird 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 Sun-lit from heaven
Like the first dew-fall On the first grass.
Praise for the sweetness Of the wet garden,
Sprung in completeness Where His feet pass.
Mine is the sun-light! 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!
