No wonder, that the beauty of sunrises has always been an inspiration of artistic expression for paintings, music, photography.

 

Cat Stevens – 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 dewfall 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 ev’ry morning
God’s recreation of the new day

Writers: STEVEN CURTIS CHAPMAN, ELEANOR FARJEON
