GOOD MORNING NEWS. Official Newsletter of Light.Soul.Breakfast.
LET US SING TOGETHER AT BREAKFAST In addition to inspired talks, contemporary briefing, funny anecdotes, quiz and a hearty breakfast, Light Soul Breakfast will get participants singing together songs relevant to the program. According to Bro Mel B Libre, “We went through a list of songs, and found two most fitting, namely “Morning has Broken” and “Fill the World with Love”.” LSB happens on Saturday 27 April 2013, 8:00am in Pinoy Grill, 3/330 Great North Road, Henderson, Auckland. "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 set to a traditional Gaelic tune known as "Bunessan" Cat Stevens included a version on his 1971 album Teaser and the Firecat that reached number six on the US pop chart and number one on the US easy listening chart in 1972. “Fill the World with Love” composed by Leslie Bricusse was popularized by Petula Clark in the 1969 film, “Goodbye Mr Chips”. It has since become a staple hymn in masses and graduation programs. The lyrics of the songs are found below: 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 the springing fresh from the word 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 every morning God's recreation of the new day FILL THE WORLD WITH LOVE In the morning of my life I shall look to the sunrise. At a moment in my life when the world is new And the blessing I shall ask is that God will grant me,
Thank you for the support:
To be brave and strong and true, And to fill the world with love my whole life through. (Chorus) And to fill the world with love And to fill the world with love And to fill the world with love my whole life through In the noontime of my life I shall look to the sunshine, At a moment in my life when the sky is blue. And the blessing I shall ask shall remain unchanging. To be brave and strong and true, And to fill the world with love my whole life through (Chorus) In the evening of my life I shall look to the sunset, At a moment in my life when the night is due. And the question I shall ask only I can answer. Was I brave and strong and true? Did I fill the world with love my whole life through? (Chorus)
