    Morning Has Broken was most famously recorded by Cat Stevens in 1971. This familiar Christian hymn first appeared on the landscape in 1931; there is a Christmas song with the same musical setting entitled Child In The Manger. Rick Wakeman, known for his years with the band Yes, played the now famous piano track on this tune; he had planned to use the motif on one of his own songs, but was convinced by Cat to use it for Morning Has Broken. Many recording and performing artists have cut this tune, including Judy Collins, Neil Diamond, Steven Curtis Chapman, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, Roger Whittaker, and Aaron Neville.

Morning Has Broken Lyrics
music - traditional
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
