The First Day Of Spring Brings to Mind "Morning Has Broken"

One beautiful Spring morning, I was sitting on my porch listening to the birds sing and I thought about the hymn, "Morning Has Broken".

This hymn has been an important part of my family as it is sung at joyous occasions like weddings and reunions but also at funerals.

"Morning Has Broken" illustrates new beginnings and as we sing this beautiful hymn written by Eleanor Farjeon, we are reminded how very special each and every day is and to be thankful for it.

Take a real deep breath of spring and begin anew!

Morning Has Broken - Sung by Cat Stevens

"Morning Has Broken" has been sung and played by many different artists. It was Cat Stevens who made this beautiful hymn popular but the Gaelic Tune in itself is beautiful on a variety of instruments.

Morning Has Broken with Lyrics

My Favorite Hymn

I need to listen to this each and every morning. When I listen to this Hymn, I feel renewed and ready to face the day with thanksgiving and Rejoice and Be Glad!

Morning Has Broken Lyrics

Lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon

Morning Has Broken

As Sung by Cat Stevens

lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon

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 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


Eleanor Farjeon Wrote The Lyrics To Morning Has Broken

Who Was Eleanor Farjeon?

Eleanor Farjeon wrote "Morning Has Broken" in 1931. The words were written for an old Gaelic tune.Eleanor was a sickly child with poor eyesight so was home schooled and developed a keen interest in books. She began writing at an early age due to the encouragement of her father. Eleanor passed away in 1965 and an award is given annually in her name.

Read more about Eleanor's work as a poet and author of childrens books on Wikipedia.

This Page is Dedicated To The Memory Of The Reverend Jack Crandall

Jack was the first person to expose me to this beautiful hymn, "Morning Has Broken". He was a very special man who touched many people. I am proud that I was one of them.

Jack's daughter, Lea, made a wonderful website as a tribute to her dad and it contains some of his sermons. She will be adding more of his meaningful sermons so that he can continue to touch our lives.Reverend Jack Crandall

My Friend, John, Remembers Jack

John Sitton (sittonbull on Squidoo) shared these words in the comment section. I just had to move them into the lens because I wanted to make sure that nobody missed this. Thank you, sittonbull!

That's a wonderful idea... dedicating this lens to Jack! I'll share a poem I wrote to him to celebrate and commemorate his 30th year in the ministry on 5/22/93 when we were at NACP. You know he loved sailing...I know you can relate to the rest! He was and is such a special "light" in all of our lives!

To Jack Crandall from John Sitton

Crandall _____ Maker of words!

Strummer of cerebral chords...Reaching and tacking...Navigator for our souls!

May you always share your gift,

Which helps us find glimpses of ourselves...In the light of truth!

And May your sails always...Be filled with a gentle wind!

      Thankyou for bringing "Morning has broken" back for me..my late husband and i married on St.Valentine's Day 14/02/1987 and i insisted on walking down the aisle of St. Marys church Rotherhithe to it rather than the traditional "Here comes the bride" as it has always been my favourite hymn ever since primary school..after we were wed the whole congregation sang "Glad that i live am i for the sky is blue"..it was a momentous day..sadly my husband George passed away almost 13 years ago but i am sure he would approve of me mentioning our wedding day here on this lens..Thankyou for being part of my spiritual moment today x Tina

      I love the song, Morning Has Broken. I was introduced to it by my High School music teacher and then as a recording by Cat Stevens. How surprised I was to later find it in a Hymnal. It is a song that makes you want to perch out on a limb with the songbirds and sing about spring. Morning Has Broken goes so well with spring and the lovely flowers growing in your garden.

I really hope everyone who visits or revisits this lens will click on the link 'Reverend Jack Crandall' and gain some grasp of who Jack was and is! As all of us who knew him could have anticipated, Jack shaped his life as a messenger of God who also had cancer... in the same "down to earth", magnificent and compelling way that he had done before cancer. Lea has done an excellent job of reconstructing important parts of those years... and again... Ohme... this is so fitting and meaningful and thoughtful for you to dedicate this lens to Jack! I suspect that he is wearing an appreciative grin... and listening to this conversation with a "fist pump" and a... Yeah!

      Oh Ohme... all the superlatives your fans have showered on this and more! Beautiful Spring mornings make you just want to burst out in a joyous refrain of this song. I know it's redundant, but this is also one of my favorite songs. In church I always sing the "Cat Stevens" version... It's a song that needs to be sung with a little "bounce" and zest! It will always, to me, be the signature song for the arrival of Easter. Makes me think of Jack Crandall... for MHB welcomed us to many ethereal Easter sunrise services as we were arriving at the outdoor amphitheater at Camp Hope on Easter Morning! It set the tone for the service and complemented, so much, the setting of the dogwoods blooming beautifully against the backdrop of Lake Harwell there! Thanks for the memories! Stars all round and a favorite!
