185. When Morning Gilds the Skies

Text: Katholisches Gesangbuch
Music: Joseph Barnby, 1838-1896
Tune: LAUDES DOMINI, Meter: 666.666

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!  

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 chant they hear:  
	May Jesus Christ be praised!  

3.	Let all the earth around 
	ring joyous with the sound:  
	May Jesus Christ be praised!  
	In heaven's eternal bliss 
	the loveliest strain is this:
	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!
