Yes, "Morning Has Broken..." as Eric mentioned, is my first thought, and this verse in particular:
"I am the sunrise, warming the heavens,
Spilling my warm glow over the earth.
Praise for the brightness of this new morning,
Filling my spirit with Your great love. "

I've been waiting for this image to post Scott - I really like it. The placement of the flowers negates the dark negative space of the hills which obviously allows for more of the gorgeous sky. That was just one of those magical mornings. BTW - was just up there last week and those wildflowers are still there!
