Good Morning - Thank God You're Alive







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

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

My tongue shall never tire
Of chanting with the choir
May Jesus Christ be praised
The song of sacred joy
It never seems to cloy
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

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

Be this while life is mine
My canticle divine
May Jesus Christ be praised
Be this the eternal song
Through ages all along
May Jesus Christ be praised
