34. When Morning Gilds the Skies

When morning gilds the skies,
My heart awaking cries,
Thy name, O God, be praised!
Alike at work and prayer
To thee do I repair,
Thy name, O God, be praised!

Let earth's wide circle round
In joyful note resound,
Thy name, O God, be praised!
Let earth and sea and sky,
From depth to height reply,
Thy name, O God, be praised!

Be this, while life is mine,
My canticle divine,
Thy name, O God, be praised!
Be this the eternal song,
Through all the ages long,
Thy name, O God, be praised!
