Verse 1:
                F
Christ be in my waking,
              Am
As the sun is rising,
             F
In my day of working,
        G     Am2
With me every hour.
          C/E   F
Christ be in my resting,
              Am2
As the day is ending,
        C/E    F
Calming and refreshing,
         G           C
Watching through the night.

    All my life to know You,

    Every day to walk with You.
    Am       E7/G♯             C7/G
    Saviour, You're my deepest longing,

    Teach me, Lord, to walk with You.

                F
Christ be in my thinking,
            Am
And my understanding,
                 F
Guarding me from evil,
        G      Am2
Walking in the light.
          C/E   F
Christ be in my speaking,
             Am2

Pure and not deceiving,

Grace to all who hear.

          C/E   F
Christ be in my gladness
               Am

Thankful for the goodness
       G        Am2
Of the Father's hand.
          C/E   F
Christ be in my sorrow,
             Am2
In my day of darkness,
        C/E    F
Knowing that I follow
       G        C
In the steps He trod.
Verse 4:
            C/E      F
Christ when hope has faded,
                Am
Nothing left to cling to,
               F
Every pleasure jaded,
      G       Am2
Every well is dry.
           C/E    F
Christ the loving Shepherd
                  Am2
Draws me with His kindness,
         C/E      F
Leads me from the desert
       G          C
To the streams of life.

CHRIST BE IN MY WAKING,
As the sun is rising,
In my day of working,
With me every hour.
Christ be in my resting,
As the day is ending,
Calming and refreshing,
Watching through the night.
 
Christ be in my thinking,
And my understanding,
Guarding me from evil,
Walking in the light.
Christ be in my speaking,
Every word a blessing,
Pure and not deceiving,
Grace to all who hear.
 
Jesus, this is my devotion,
All my life to know You,
Every day to walk with You.  
Savior, You're my deepest longing,
You're the One I live for,
Teach me, Lord, to walk with You.

 
Christ be in my gladness
For the joy of living,  
Thankful for the goodness
Of the Father's hand.
Christ be in my sorrow,
In my day of darkness,
Knowing that I follow
In the steps He trod.
 
Christ when hope has faded,
Nothing left to cling to,
Every pleasure jaded,
Every well is dry.
Christ the loving Shepherd
Draws me with His kindness,
Leads me from the desert
To the streams of life.
