    MORNING HAS BROKEN is a popular Christian hymn composed in 1931, and popularized by Cat Stevens in the 1970's. The music, a tune from the Scottish Highland known as Brunessan, is much older than the lyric. This same music is heard in the Christmas Carol "Child In The Manger" from the 1800's. Other hymns borrow this same musical setting from Morning Has Broken. Acclaimed pop keyboardist Rick Wakeman was a part of the rhythm section that cut the Cat Steven's version of this tune. Stevens heard Wakeman playing a little ditty he was working on for his own solo album, and persuaded him to use it as the intro, outro, and middle section of his recording of MORNING HAS BROKEN.

Morning has broken, like the first morning
Blackbird has spoken like the first bird
Praise for the singing, praise for the morning
Praise for them 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
