When Morning Gilds the Skies

This glorious morning/day is the perfect time to recall the lyrics of the beautiful, timeless hymn “When Morning Gilds the Skies”! The lyrics are below.

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!

Let earth’s wide circle round

In joyful notes resound:

May Jesus Christ be praised!

Let air and sea and sky

From depth to height reply:

May Jesus Christ be praised!

Be this, while life is mine,

My canticle divine:

May Jesus Christ be praised!

This the eternal song

Through all the ages long:

May Jesus Christ be praised!

By Edward Caswell and Joseph Bamby

Have a tremendously blessed, Christ-praising day, friends!
