“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.
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 1881-1965)
Sing praise to the Lord, You saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His Holy Name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
His Favor is for life!
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
