100. When Morning Gilds the Skies

1 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!

2 Discordant humankind,
in this your concord find,
may Jesus Christ be praised!
Let all earth around
ring joyous with the sound,
may Jesus Christ be praised!

3 Sing, suns and stars of space,
sing, all that see his face;
may Jesus Christ be praised!
God's whole creation o'er,
both now and evermore:
may Jesus Christ be praised!

4 Be this, while life is mine,
my canticle divine,
may Jesus Christ be praised!
Be this the eternal song
through all the ages long,
may Jesus Christ be praised!
