lyrics

1. 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.

2. When sleep her balm denies, my silent spirit sighs:
May Jesus Christ be praised.
When evil thoughts oppress, with this I shield my breast:
May Jesus Christ be praised.

3. 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.

4. In heav'n's eternal bliss the loveliest strain is this:
May Jesus Christ be praised.
The powers of darkness fear, when this sweet chant they hear:
May Jesus Christ be praised.

5. Be this, while life is mine, my canticle divine:
May Jesus Christ be praised:
Be this th'eternal song, through all the ages on:
May Jesus Christ be praised.
