Morning Has Broken...
When I took this photo early this morning, the lyrics to Cat Stevens song "Morning has Broken" arose in my head and have stayed there much of the day.
What I didn't know is that this song was written much earlier, in 1931, and as a Christian hymn set to an even older Scottish Gaelic tune.
"Morning Has Broken" is a popular and well-known Christian hymn first published in 1931. It has words by English author Eleanor Farjeon and is set to a traditional Scottish Gaelic tune known as "Bunessan" (it shares this tune with the 19th century Christmas Carol "Child in the Manger"). It is often sung in children's services. English pop musician and folk singer Cat Stevens included a version on his 1971 album Teaser and the Firecat. " (wikipedia)
