Morning Has Broken

We took an amazing weekend trip to the Mississippi Gulf Coast this weekend and loved every second with our sweet friends John Eric, DeeDee and Jane. Early-bird me got up in time to watch the sun come up over the water on Saturday and Sunday. It's my favorite time of the day! These pictures remind me of the hymn "Morning Has Broken" 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
