Friday slowdown

 In the past few weeks there have been some sleepless nights in our
household. I know that many of you have heartaches and struggles, too. This 
hymn came to mind one morning, and I hope that it blesses you as it did me. 
 
 
 
        When morning gilds the skies 
 my heart awakening cries:  
        May Jesus Christ be praised!  
 Alike at work and prayer, 
 to Jesus I repair:  
 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! 
 
        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!  
 Be this th' eternal song 
 through all the ages long:  
 May Jesus Christ be praised!
