147. All Creatures of Our God and King

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

2 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 evening, find a voice:
O praise Him, O praise Him!
Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia!

3 Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfolded blessings on our way;
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flow'rs and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show:
O praise Him, O praise Him!
Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia!

4 And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part
O praise Him! 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!

5 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!

Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him, all creatures here below,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Praise Him above,ye heav'nly host,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost:
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Alleluia, Alleluia! Alleluia!
