This track is included in our “Even There” CD Album.



Waking I rise, opening unwilling eyes; daybreak is calling me out of the night.

Worry forgotten and burdens at rest – they rise with the sun to trouble again.



But I will surrender and lift up my praise for this is the will of my Father today.

Earnestly praying, awake with thanksgiving; I will surrender, surrender and praise!


When morning greets* the sky my heart awaking cries, May Jesus Christ be praised!”

Alike at work and prayer, of Jesus I declare*: May Jesus Christ be praised!”


Weary without and much more weary within; this marks the journey, the battle with sin.

Failure would have me and guilt overtake – my spirit a captive if silent I stay.


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!”


Let all the earth around ring joyous with the sound: May Jesus Christ be praised!”

In Heaven’s eternal bliss the loveliest strain is this: May Jesus Christ be praised!”


Be this, while life is mine, my canticle divine: May Jesus Christ be praised!”

Sing this eternal song through all the ages long: May Jesus Christ be praised!”
