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 sweetness of the wet garden
Sprung in completeness where his feet pass

Born of the one light, Eden saw play
Praise with elation, praise every morning
God's recreation of the new day

Morning has broken like the first morning
Of the new day
