From sunrise to sunset and in all other moments

When morning gilds the skies 


my heart awaking cries:


May Jesus Christ be praised! WP_20150504_011

When evening shadows fall,

this rings my curfew call


May Jesus Christ be praised!

The words quoted above are some of the lyrics from the classic hymn, May Jesus Christ be praised (When morning gilds the skies). I learned the hymn as a child; however, it is as an adult that I am learning the full truth underlying the lyrics – God is worthy of my praise and is to be praised at all times and in all circumstances. Also, the choice to praise is  Him is always within my power.

The  complete lyrics can be found here.
