Praise for the morning!

I have always loved the words to this song since I first heard Cat Stevens sing them decades ago, and I was delighted to find the poem “Morning Has Broken” by Eleanor Farjean.

Morning has broken like the first morning,
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird.
Praise for the singing! Praise for the morning!….

Praise with elation, praise every morning
Spring’s re-creation of the First Day!

I found this poem in a splendid children’s book, one that I hadn’t opened for years—This Amazing Word, compiled by Lois Rock.
