407. 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!
O burning sun with golden beam
And silver moon with softer gleam,
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2 O rushing wind and breezes soft,
O clouds that ride the winds aloft,
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
O rising morn, in praise rejoice,
O lights of evening, find a voice.
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

3 O flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for your Lord to hear.
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
O fire so masterful and bright,
Providing us with warmth and light.
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

4 Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfold rich blessings on our way;
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
The flow'rs and fruits that in you grow,
Let them God's glory also show.
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

5 And ev'ry one of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
All you who pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on him cast your care.
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

6 And you, most kind and gentle death,
Waiting to hush our final breath,
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
You lead to heav'n the child of God,
Where Christ our Lord the way has trod,
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

7 Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship God in humbleness,
Sing your praises! Alleluia!
Praise God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One!
Sing your praises! Alleluia,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!
