However, the song is actually quite a bit older – it was written by English author Eleanor Farjeon and first published in 1931.
“Morning Has Broken” is a Christian hymn and today widely used in a religious context, e.g. for funerals or children’s services.

Cat Steven’s version of the song became one of his biggest hits and signature songs.
It’s certainly a beautiful song to play on piano!

Here are the full lyrics to “Morning Has Broken”:

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 dew fall 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
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
