ALL CREATURES OF OUR GOD AND KING

 

My mouth will speak in praise of the Lord.

Let every creature praise his holy name

for ever and ever. Psalm 145:21 (NIV)

 

All creatures of our God and King,

Lift up your voice and with us sing,

Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Thou burning sun with golden beam,

Thou silver moon with softer gleam,

O praise Him, o praise Him,

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Thou rushing wind that art so strong, 

Ye clouds that sail in heav’n along,

O praise Him! Alleluia!

 

Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice, 

Ye lights of ev’ning find a voice!

O praise Him, o praise Him!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

And all ye men of tender heart,

Forgiving others, take your part, 

O sing ye! Alleluia!

 

Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,

Praise God and on Him cast your care!

O praise Him! O praise Him!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

 

Let all things their Creator bless

And worship Him in humbleness,

O praise Him, alleluia!

 

Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,

And praise the Spirit, Three in One:

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
