When Morning Gilds the Skies...



When I arose this morn at dawn, the full moon was just setting as the sun was rising in the East.  So beautiful!  God is always there to greet us with his wonders, what a blessing!

When morning gilds the skies


  
  1. 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!
  2. To Thee, my God above,
    I cry with glowing love,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
    The fairest graces spring
    In hearts that ever sing,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
  3. 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!
  4. When evil thoughts molest,
    With this I shield my breast,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
    The powers of darkness fear,
    When this sweet chant they hear,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
  5. When sleep her balm denies,
    My silent spirit sighs,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
    The night becomes as day,
    When from the heart we say,
    May Jesus Christ be praised!
  6. 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!       
  7. I Pray that you are all have a most blessed Sunday

Hi Kerrie, I just found your blog and joined it.
I love what I read and went through back a few posts you have and I love it alot.

I also have a blog and I hope you come by and join, I love having new follower's.
I have been married to my best friend, soul mate for 22 wonderful years marrie, and we have 2 wonderful sons.
Our oldest just turned 20 this past week and is in college and our youngest is 16 and is in high school.

We taught them, the true meaning of Christmas and on Christmas morning we pray together and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. We know this is a tradition they will do with their families when they have one.
We put up our manger on the mantle every year.

I will be praying for your husband.
You are is soul mate I am sure and with you being by his side and loving him is everything!
I am prayig for your WHOLE family!!!!!

Prayer is the greatest tool we have!

God Bless.

Christmas Blessings,
Tricia
