Brenda and Family: We are very saddened at the loss of such a fine man. Mark Edwards called us to let us know he had seen the obituary. It was our great honor and pleasure to have known Joe and we are truly sorry that we lost touch thru the years. Please know that our prayers are with you and your family. Our lives were truly enriched for having known him, and the community at large has lost a very fine person. We hope you can find comfort in the love we and all his friends felt for him.

Morning Has Broken

Words: Eleanor Farjeon
Music: Traditional Gaelic

1. 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 Word!

2. 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.

3. 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!
