657. Sing Your Praises to the Father

1 Sing your praises to the Father,
Sing your praises to the Son,
Sing your praises to the Spirit,
Living and eternal One.
God has made us, God has blessed us,
God has called us to be true;
God is Lord of all creation,
Daily making all things new.

2 Join the praise of ev'ry creature,
Sing with singing birds at dawn;
When the stars shine forth at nightfall,
Hear their heav'nly antiphon.
Join in praise for light of summer,
Autumn glories, winter snows,
For the coming of the springtime,
And the life of all that grows.

3 Praise God on our days of gladness
For the summons to rejoice;
Praise God in our times of sadness
For the help of heaven's voice.
God our Father, strong and loving,
Christ our Savior, Leader, Lord,
Living God, Creator Spirit,
Be your holy name adored.
