Christian Camp Songs & Chorus Hymns #35

I spent many years in my late teens and early twenties working at Christian Camps.  I even met my husband at a Christian camp.  These wonderful memories of great experiences make Christian camp songs very special to me.

On top of featuring an old hymn each month in what I call "Old Fashioned Sunday Hymn Sing" - I will also be featuring a chorus hymn every month - ENJOY!
Today's featured song is "Morning Has Broken" - by Eleanor Farjeon.

This song reminded me of something that one of the pastors from my childhood church used to say every Sunday:
"This is the day that the Lord has made - Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"

".......but rejoicing comes in the morning."  
Psalm 30:5

"See! The winter is past;
    the rains are over and gone.
Flowers appear on the earth;
    the season of singing has come,
the cooing of doves
    is heard in our land."  
Song of Songs 2:11-12

I have included a YouTube video of this wonderful song (see below the lyrics)
Morning Has Broken
Words by Eleanor Farjeon                                         Gaelic Melody

1.  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!

2.  Sweet the rain's newfall, 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.

3.  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.
