All is changed now that Third Day has recorded the song, though. Had they made this version 4 years ago when we were planning our wedding, the Hubs may have gotten his wish! Third Day makes everything better, and for those who know me, they may know I may love this band a wee bit. Just a wee bit. And certainly not inappropriately. (but Mac Powell, you may visit our mansion in heaven any time you wish.) (And yes, I know that's not how our mansions in heaven will work.)
Now that Cat Stevens no longer immediately comes to mind with this song, I can completely appreciate the beauty of the lyrics and how delicately they are written. "Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlight from heaven. Like the first dewfall, on the first grass." How beautiful is that imagery??
Without further ado, here is Third Day with Morning Has Broken to begin your morning. Enjoy - I know I will!
