  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. Whene'er the sweet church bell
    Peals over hill and dell
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
    O hark to what it sings,
    As joyously it rings,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
  3. 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.
  4. In heaven'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.
  5. 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!
    Amen.
