66. 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 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!

3 Sing, suns and stars of space,
Sing, ye that see His face,
Sing, Jesus Christ be praised!
Let all the earth around
Ring joyous with the sound:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

4 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!

Amen.
