All Creatures of Our God and King

Francis of Assisi

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 heav’n along
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice
Ye lights of evening, find a voice

Verse 3
Thou flowing water, pure and clear
Make music for thy Lord to hear O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright
That givest man both warmth and light.

Verse 4 And all ye men of tender heart
Forgiving others, take your part
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear
Praise God and on Him cast your care!

Verse 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
