LYRICS

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!

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

Ye nations of mankind, in this your concord find:
May Jesus Christ be praised,
Let all the earth around ring joyous with the sound:
Let all the earth around ring joyous with the sound:
May Christ the Lord be praised.

To God, the Word, on high, a host of angels cry,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
Let mortals, too, upraise their voice in hymns of praise,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
