Representative Text

1 To you, O God, we sing
A hymn of jubilation,
Rejoicing in your love,
Ev'ry day a new creation.
You made the earth and sea,
The sun and stars in splendor,
And saw that they were good,
full of beauty and of wonder.

Alleluia! Alleluia!
To you, O God, we sing Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia!
To you, O God, we sing Alleluia!

2 To you, O God, we sing
A hymn of praise and blessing,
A song from grateful hearts,
Faith and hope and love expressing.
Creation, with one voice,
proclaims your might and glory
As people ev'rywhere
tell again salvation's story. [Refrain]


1 Cantemos al Señor
Un himno de alegría,
Un cántico de amor
Al nacer el nuevo día.
Él hizo el cielo, el mar,
el sol, y las estrellas,
Y en ellos vio bondad,
pues sus obras eran bellas.

¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!
Cantemos al Señor
¡Aleluya! ¡Aleluya!
Cantemos al Señor ¡Aleluya!

2 Cantemos al Señor
Un himno de alabanza
Que exprese nuestro amor,
Nuestra fe, y nuestra esperanza.
Toda la creación
pregona su grandeza.
Así nuestro cantar
va anunciando su belleza. [Refrain]
