Cat Stevens - Morning Has Broken - Saturday Night Music

Yes, another week passes and it's Saturday Night so music night on this blog. It is of course Easter weekend (for those who celebrate) but for Christians it is the most important weekend of the year. This song (hymn) takes me back to my childhood days. Mornings both at Sunday School, Primary School ... and beyond! 

"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 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." This video has some beautiful images and I hope you enjoy this gentle sound. To all the peoples in the world and all religions may peace be upon you. All the best Jan

I adore Cat Stevens and I am pleased that he has recently re-embraced his early music. We sang this song at our Easter Mass on Sunday. Just lovely. The peace and blessings of Easter to you and yours!
