Morning Has Broken


Morning Has Broken


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.


~A Children's Hymn by British poet Eleanor Farjeon (1931)~

I always loved that hymn, it's so comforting and sums up nature in a child's eye.
Happy New Year!!!

How did you enjoy Up in the Air? I saw the trailer when we went to see Sherlock Holmes. Couldn't get a feel for whether it was intended to be a drama - or comedy...
