When Morning Gilds the Skies


When morning gilds the skies
my heart awaking cries:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Alike at work and prayer,
to Jesus I repair:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

The night becomes as day when,
from the heart, we say,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
The pow'rs of darkness fear
When this sweet chant they hear,
May Jesus Christ be praised!

My tongue shall never tire
of chanting with the choir,
May Jesus Christ praised!
This song of sacred joy,
it never seems to cloy,
May Jesus Christ praised!

Does sadness fill my mind?
A solace here I find,
May Jesus Christ praised!
Or fades my earthly bliss?
My comfort still is this,
May Jesus Christ praised!

To God, the Word, on high,
the host of angels cry,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let mortals, too, upraise
their voice in hymns of praise,
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Be this at meals your grace,
in every time and place;
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Be this, when day is past,
of all your thoughts the last
May Jesus Christ be praised!

When mirth for music longs,
this is my song of songs:
May Jesus Christ praised!
When evening shadows fall,
this rings my curfew call,
May Jesus Christ be praised!

When sleep her balm denies,
my silent spirit sighs,
May Jesus Christ praised!
When evil thoughts molest,
with this I shield my breast,
May Jesus Christ praised!

The night becomes as day
when from the heart we say:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
The powers of darkness fear
when this sweet chant they hear:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

No lovelier antiphon
in all high heav'n is known
Than, Jesus Christ be praised!
There to the eternal Word
the eternal psalm is heard:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Sing, suns and stars of space,
sing, ye that see His face,
Sing, Jesus Christ be praised!
God's whole creation o'er,
for aye and evermore
Shall Jesus Christ be praised!

Ye nations of mankind,
in this your concord find:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let all the earth around
Ring joyous with the sound,
May Jesus Christ be praised.

Be this, while life is mine,
my canticle divine:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Be this th' eternal song
through all the ages long:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
