Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

217. All Creatures of Our God and King

French:

1 Vous, créatures du Seigneur,
chantez toujours en son honneur,
alléluia, alléluia!
Car c'est lui seul qu'il faut louer,
il donne au soleil sa clarté,
rendez gloire, rendez gloire,
alléluia, alléluia, alléluia!

2 Dieu, sois loué pour le soleil,
pour ce grand frère sans pareil,
alléluia, alléluia!
Et pour la lune et sa lueur,
pour chaque étoile notre soeur,
rendons gloire, rendons gloire,
alléluia, alléluia, alléluia!

3 Loué sois-tu pour sire feu,
vivant, robuste, glorieux,
alléluia, alléluia!
Lat terre, en maternelle soeur,
nous comble de ses mille fleurs,
rendons gloire, rendons gloire,
alléluia, alléluia, alléluia!

4 Heureux les artisans de paix,
leur nom soit béni à jamais,
alléluia, alléluia!
Ceux qui ont souffert et pâti,
ils te remettent leurs soucis,
rendons gloire, rendons gloire,
alléluia, alléluia, alléluia!

5 Dieu trois fois saint, nous te louons,
nous te chantons, nous t’adorons,
alléluia, alléluia!
Gloire au Père et louange au Fils,
et loué soit le Saint-Esprit,
rendons gloire, rendons gloire,
alléluia, alléluia, alléluia!
