Michael, Ricky and Marci, I'm so sorry you've lost your mother. She was cute as she could be right up until the end. I loved her very much and had many good times with her. She will be remembered as a good person by those who knew her. May your sadness be touched by The Lord and lessened by 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!
