Sunset Poem (eli Jenkins' Prayer) Lyrics

Every morning when I wake,
Dear Lord a little prayer I make,
O please to keep Thy loving eye
On all poor creatures born to die.

And every evening at sun-down
I ask a blessing on the town,
For whether we last the night or no
I'm sure is always touch-and-go.

We are not wholly bad or good
Who live our lives under Milk Wood,
And Thou, I know, wilt be the first
To see our best side, not our worst.

O let us see another day!
Bless us all this night, I pray,
And to the sun we all will bow
And say, good-bye - but just for now!

Beautilful tune but isn't the song meant to be a satire on pious and sanctimonious religiosity or am I being too cynical. Reason for the question is that our choir is singing it and I can't take it seriously
