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!”
