|Maine Coast Sunrise|
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 world
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
- Morning has Broken, Words by Eleanor Farjeon, 1931, set to the traditional Scottish Gaelic tune "Bunessan."
Sung Easter mornings at the Trinitarian Congregational Church Sunrise Service, Old North Bridge, Concord Massachusetts, 1970s, led by beloved minister Tuck Gilbert (Chandler "Tuck" Gilbert, Yale Divinity School, Class of 1951) and accompanied by a pedal-powered organ.
