All creatures of our God and King – Hymn Lyrics

1. All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Bright burning sun with golden beam,
Pale silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise Him, O praise Him
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia,

2. Great rushing winds that are so strong
You, clouds that sail in heaven along,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
cr You rising morn, in praise rejoice,
dim Your lights of evening find a voice.

3. Swift flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for your Lord to hear,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
You, fire so masterful and bright,
You give to man both warmth and light,


4. And all you men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
You, who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God, and on Him cast your care.


5. And you, most kind and gentle death,
Waiting to hush out latest breath,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
You, lthat lead home, the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way has trod.


6. Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship Him in humbleness,
Alleluia, Alleluia,
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son
And praise the Spirit, Three-in-One. Amen

[St Francis of Assis Tr. WH Drape]
