Dear Ron

 

The two strange entities rose up from their hell's hibernation again....They are disturbed with Morning has Broken...they don't like such a music, such a sound...just for fun my brother...I think they are so stupid that the devil would kick them out of job!

 

Brotherly love,

 

George

George,

 

I thought most of the pictures and the hymn were beautiful. My wife said Mr. Stevens wrote the song before he became a Muslim. I knew nothing about Cat Stevens. I removed the item to avoid any appearance of evil and association with evil and that it not appear that I am supporting such, because of course, I don't!

Ron,

 

"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" (it shares this tune with the 19th century Christmas Carol "Child in the Manger"[1]). It is often sung in children's services...The hymn originally appeared in the second edition of Songs of Praise (published in 1931), to the tune "Bunessan", arranged by the composer Martin Shaw. In Songs of Praise Discussed, the editor, Percy Dearmer, explains that as there was need for a hymn to give thanks for each day, English poet and children's author Eleanor Farjeon had been "asked to make a poem to fit the lovely gaelic tune". A slight variation on the original hymn, also written by Eleanor Farjeon, can be found in the form of a poem contributed to the anthology Children's Bells, under Farjeon's new title, "A Morning Song (For the First Day of Spring)", published by Oxford University Press in 1957.


"Bunessan" had been found in L. McBean's Songs and Hymns of the Gael, published in 1900.[3] Before Farjeon's words, the tune was used as a Christmas carol, which began "Child in the manger, Infant of Mary", translated from the Gaelic lyrics written by Mary MacDonald. The English-language Roman Catholic hymnal also uses the tune for the hymn, "This Day God Gives Me".

English musician and singer Cat Stevens included a version on his 1971 ... The song became identified with Stevens when it reached #6 on the US pop chart and #1 on the US adult contemporary chart in 1972.[2] ....But for these " little ones servants of the devil" who are watching our freedom it is better to remove it....

Response to George: Agreed George! Thanks for the history. Due to that history I will repost the item for those who would like to view the beautiful pictures (for the most part) and words in the Christian sense they were originally intended, this (below) is the link.

 

There are some who will see Satan in everything because they are possessed. It is my understanding that Cat Stevens made the recording when he was a Christian. That is what I associate this production with. It is surely not my purpose in the least to promote Cat Stevens, but rather a beautiful hymn with beautiful words. If our critics were consistent, they would sing no hymns because they were written by Babylonians! That kind of legalism and fanaticism we can do without for that is why many hate Christians!

 

By the way George, when you first sent this to the forum, I did not know about Cat Stevens. I am a classical music buff, and I knew nothing of him. But I was maliciously judged by two (SN and GW –mostly SN), who, Satan-like, assume the judgment seat everyday of their lives, allthewhile not realizing that they are headed for the same place Stevens may be headed, for their malevolent, malicious gossip and judgment without knowing the facts and even when they do know the facts!

 

No doubt it was a Catholic, Protestant Babylonian or atheist heathen who wrote and performed the music for SN’s DVD! Interesting! Very interesting!

 

There is more hope for those who have never heard and rejected the last message re: Cat Stevens, than those who have heard it and have rejected is and/or defend those who have.

Thank you...! It is almost impossible to breath a fresh air in such a poisoned atmosphere...But I would not allow these wolves to confiscate my freedom...never ever! May The Lord  rebuke and chasten them and may He  give you authority over all your enemies!
