A Song, “Morning Has Broken”

 

It is indeed difficult to say that I have an all-time favorite song. It would be nearer to the truth to say that sometimes the Holy Spirit puts a song in my heart for a season and at that particular time that happens to be my favorite song.

One thing there is no doubt of, though, is that I prefer singing and listening to the old hymns and spirituals more than the more modern tunes. Not that the latter are not equally spiritual, but you have to do a lot of rummaging to arrive at something truly spiritual. But with the old ones, they are all spiritual hits and they transport me to worlds unknown.

I thank God that at any given season in my life I always have a song singing in my heart.

At present, my favorite is “Morning Has Broken”. For close to a month now, I wake up and sing that song before doing anything else. I love the beauty of its poetry and its heavenly cadence. Many are the times I wonder where the writer got those words from. And I thank the Lord Jesus for giving me the strength to love this song.

I was taught this song by a Seventh Day Adventist lady from Florida, U.S.A. (Sometimes Pentecostals think they have nothing to learn from Seventh Day Adventists and vice versa but, barring some people’s emphasis of a wrong doctrine (in which we can help them with love), you will find extremely wonderful and spiritual people in every spectrum of the Christian faith. I am sure when we get to heaven we will be surprised to find there Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, Adventists, Coptics, Amish – and even a few pagans.)

  1. I remember the beauty of that song, and it goes well with the beauty of your sentiment: “when we get to heaven we will be surprised to find there Pentecostals, Roman Catholics, Adventists, Coptics, Amish – and even a few pagans.” Well said.
