"Morning has Broken" is a well-known traditional Christian hymn which is played a lot around Christmas. It has been performed by many artists including Cat Stevens, Neil Diamond and Art Garfunkel,  and has been used recently in a TV advert for Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The letter notes below can be shifted up or down in key depending on your instrument or skill level, or switched to Do-Re-Mi notation if you prefer. Low notes are prefixed with a full stop (.) and higher notes with a caret (^). Happy practice!
