All Creatures of Our God and King

Francis of Assisi, 1225

Verse 1
All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 2
Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in Heaven along,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 3
And all ye men of renewed heart,
Now cry aloud and take your part,
O sing ye! Alleluia!
We who long pain and sorrow share,
Praise God and on Him cast our care!
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Verse 4
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!
