Journal - Music -Poetry - Inspirations -Sun-

My favorite times of the day are sunrise and sunset. God paints the sky with beautiful colors for us humans to enjoy. I think we should all take time out each day to enjoy a sunrise or sunset. Below are some of my favorite songs that celebrate these times.


(This is a picture I took with my digital camer from my front steps.)

The sun lives in the heavens where God placed it.
It burts forth like a radiant bidegroom after his wedding.
It rejoices like a great athlete eager to run the race.
The sun rises at one end of the heavens and follows its course to the other end.
Nothing can hide from its heat.

(Psalms19 4-6)

Chelsea Morning
By: Joni Mitchell

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and
the first thing that I heard
Was a song outside my window, and the
traffic wrote the words
It came ringing up like Christmas bells, and
rapping up like pipes and drums

Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
And we'll wear it till the night comes

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and
the first thing that I saw
Was the sun through the curtains, and a
rainbow on the wall
Blue, red, and gold to welcome you,
crimson crystal beads to beckon

Oh, won't you stay
We'll put on the day
There's a sun show every second

Now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
And the streets are paved with passerby
And pigeons fly
And papers lie
Waiting to blow away

Woke up, it was a Chelsea morning, and
The first thing that I knew
There was milk and toast and honey and a
bowl of oranges, too
And the sun poured in like butterscotch and
stuck to all my senses

Oh won't you stay
We'll put on the day
And we'll talk in present tenses

When the curtain closes and the
rainbow runs away
I will bring you incencse owls by night
By candlelight
By jewel-light
If only you will stay
Pretty baby, won't you
Woke up, it's a Chelsea morning

Morning has broken
by: Cat Stevens

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 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 every morning
God's recreation of the new day
