1 Let the whole creation cry,
"Glory to the Lord on high!"
Heaven and earth, awake and sing,
"Praise to our almighty King!"
Praise him, angle hosts above,
Ever bright and fair in love;
sun and moon, lift up your voice;
night and stars, in God rejoice.
2 Christian striving for the Lord,
prophets burning with his Word,
those to whom the arts belong,
add their voices to the song.
Those of knowledge and of law,
to the glorious circle draw;
all who work and all who wait,
sing, "The Lord is good and great!"
3 Men and women, young and old,
raise the anthem loud and bold,
and let children's happy hearts
in this worship bear their parts;
from the north to southern pole
let the mighty chorus roll:
“Holy, holy, holy One,
glory be to God alone!”
