Theme: Morning and Opening Hymns

1.  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 Word!

2.  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 God's feet pass.

3.  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!
