23. All Creatures of Our God and King

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

2 O rushing wind that art so strong,
you clouds that sail in heaven along,
O praise him, Alleluia!
O rising morn in praise rejoice,
O lights of evening, find a voice:
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

3 O flowing water, pure and clear,
make music for your Lord to hear,
Alleluia, Alleluia!
O fire so masterful and bright
providing us with warmth and light,
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

4 All you who are of tender heart,
forgiving others, take your part,
sing praises, Alleluia!
All you who pain and sorrow bear,
praise God and on him cast your care,
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!

5 Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in humbleness,
O praise him, Allleuia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son
and praise the Spirit, Three in One,
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, Alleluia, Alleluia!
