    I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY is the 4th CD by Greg Rice. It is a collection of favorite hymns that have blessed the church for many years.

    The CD is manufactured to resemble a vinyl record album and even begins with the sound of an old scratchy, vinyl record. The project is lovingly dedicated to Greg's grandfather, Dewey W. Crabb, who was an inspiration, not only to his family but to all who were blessed to have known him.

Words: Anonymous
Music by Joseph Barnby
Composed 1968

WHEN MORNING GILDS THE SKIES is the 7th track on I LOVE TO TELL THE STORY. The arrangement is based on an arrangement by Derric Johnson under the alternate title of MAY JESUS CHRIST BE PRAISED from 1981.

lyrics

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!”

Be this when day is past, of all my thoughts the last:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”
The night becomes as day when from my heart I say:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”

Does sadness fill my mind? A comfort here I find:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”
Or fades my earthly bliss? My solace still is this:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”

Be this, while life is mine, my hymn of praise divine:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”
Be this th’eternal song through all the ages long:
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”
“May Jesus Christ be praised!”
