Free Lead Piano Sheet
Morning Has Broken

Free lead piano sheet "Morning Has Broken"! This beautiful free vocal sheet music is available for download in the keys of F, G, A, Bb, C, and also an easy version for beginners shared between the two hands.

I really wish I could have placed the lyrics on each piano lead sheet, but the lyrics by Eleanor Farjeon seem to be under copyright still, as most (not all) sources say that she wrote the lyrics in 1931. If anyone knows differently, let me know! 



However, you can easily find the words by Googling "Morning Has Broken" lyrics! This beautiful old song with its lovely verses became a pop hit many years ago when Cat Stevens recorded it.

Here is an audio of the piece on Teaser & The Firecat.  In the video below is Cat Stevens himself in 1976 on tour; this was shortly before he decided to adopt Islam and change his name to Yusuf Islam:

I have been giving my students lead sheets every few weeks, allowing them to choose what they like, and adding their own chord stylings to them. It's amazing what they like to play when given a choice! Morning Has Broken appeals to the kids who like "pretty" music, and who like to sing along as they play.

This is the beginner version, shared between two hands:
