50. 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 heaven 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 flowers 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 Ye! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care!
O praise ye! 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 heavenly host:
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Amen.
