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!


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

  1. I love these morning photos! And hymn lyrics often speak to my soul. A lovely post, Kit. Makes me want to climb a mountain and see the sunrise.
