All Things Praise Thee

Representative Text

1 All things praise thee, Lord most high,
heaven and earth and sea and sky,
all were for your glory made,
that thy greatness thus displayed,
should all worship bring to thee;
all things praise thee: Lord, may we.

2 All things praise thee: night to night
sings in silent hymns of light:
all things praise thee: day to day
chants thy power in burning ray;
time and space are praising thee:
all things praise thee: Lord, may we.

3 All things praise thee, high and low,
rain and dew, and seven-hued bow,
crimson sunset, fleecy cloud,
rippling stream, and tempest loud,
summer, winter – all to thee
glory render: Lord, may we.

4 All things praise thee, heaven's high shrine
rings with melody divine;
lowly bending at thy feet,
seraph and archangel meet;
this their highest bliss, to be
ever praising: Lord, may we.

5 All things praise thee, gracious Lord,
great Creator, powerful Word,
omnipresent Spirit, now
at thy feet we humbly bow,
lift our hearts in praise to thee;
all things praise thee: Lord, may we.

All things praise Thee, Lord most high. G. W. Conder. [Praise.] Published in 1874, in his Appendix to the Leeds Hymn Book of 1853, No. 6, in 6 stanzas of 6 lines. It is given in many collections, its popularity arising to some extent from its remarkable word-painting. This is a distinguishing feature of the author's compositions both in prose and verse. The hymn is sometimes abbreviated by the omission of one or more stanzas. In Thring's Collection, 1882, No. 249, st. iii. and iv. are thus omitted with advantage.
