256. Let the Whole Creation Cry

1 Let the whole creation cry,
"Glory to the Lord on high"
Heaven and earth, awake and sing,
"God is our eternal King."
Praise God, all ye hosts above,
Ever shining forth in love;
Sun and moon, uplift your voice;
Night and stars, in God rejoice!

2 Men and women, young and old,
Raise the anthem manifold;
Join with children’s songs of praise,
Worship God through length of days.
From the north to southern pole
Let the mighty chorus roll:
“Holy, holy, holy One,
Glory be to God alone!”
