PRAISE TO CHRIST
222
2   Whene'er the sweet church bell Peals over hill and dell,
May Jesus Christ be praised! O hark to what it sings, As joyously it rings, 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  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!
5   In heaven's eternal bliss The loveliest strain is this,
May Jesus- Christ be praised! Let earth, and sea and sky From depth to height reply,
May Jesus Christ be praised!
German. Tr. Rev. E. Caswall, 1853 «
