Morning has broken

Lyrics of ' Morning has broken' for picture Sunrise.

As Sung by Cat Stevens

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

But if you'd rather have the Gayatri mantra which is also a hymn of praise to the sun, then learning sanskrit may not be a such a bad idea. Students of St. James School in London are doing so and seem to be proficient & one- up on all who do not know the language. Does that put a whole new spin on the phrase, ' The sun never sets on the Empire' ? I wonder.
