When Morning Gilds The Skies


When Morning Gilds The Skies – from Katholisches Gesangbuch

Verse 1:
When morning gilds the skies, My heart awakening cries,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Alike at work and prayer, To Jesus I repair;
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 2:
The night becomes as day  when from the heart we say,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
The powers of darkness fear, when this sweet song they hear:
May Jesus Christ be praised!

Verse 3:
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!

Verse 4:
In heav’n’s eternal bliss the loveliest strain is this,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let earth, and sea, and sky from depth to height reply:
May Jesus Christ be praised!
