Morning is Breaking...
Thank You God, for Your Love;
Thank You God, for Your Son;
Thank You God, for His Precious Blood,
Shed for us, Whom you have called.
Thank You God, that we have heard You,
and have chosen to trust, believe, and obey,
Your Word, Your Love,
Thank you for the opportunities to Love others
and show them Your Love.
Thank you God, for giving us the choice,
to walk in Your Light and have Life Everlasting.
Thank You God, for the Peace that passes all understanding.
Thank you God for the Morning, For each new day.....
I Love you Lord Jesus, Sheridan
Song: Morning has Broken
["Child in the manger, Infant of Mary"]
lyrics 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
The lyrics were written by Eleanor Farjeon in 1922 and are found in the hymnals of many denominations. The original poem can be found in the anthology "Children's Bells" under Farjeon's original title A Morning Song (For the First Day of Spring), published by Oxford University Press in 1957. The tune to which it is normally sung is called "Bunessan", based upon a Scottish Gaelic traditional melody. Before Farjeon's words, it was used as a Christmas carol which began "Child in the manger, Infant of Mary", translated from the Gaelic lyrics written by Mary MacDonald.
God gives to each, equally, a morning, bright and shiny;
a new day, to fill as we will;
Full of Hope and the opportunity that it will be lived according to His Will.
We each decide, from our waking how our new day will be lived out.
How we will allow Him to Bless us - or need to chasten us.
Whether we will greet those in our lives with a smile and gladness,
as a witness of Him and the Joy in our lives,
or by our actions and deeds that we are not yet conformed to His Way.
It's our choice, Divinely Inspired, Freely Given.
Yet, even when we falter, He Forgives if we only ask, for He has already
Paid the Price in our place. But we cannot forget to tell Him;
to give Him the opportunity to show us His Mercy - once again.
Sometimes our day goes awry, but I remember a little saying:
A day hemmed in Prayer, rarely comes unraveled"
....but if it does, God is always there, waiting to listen,
always wanting to help us along our way.
Desiring only to return us to His Way....through His Amazing Love.
