Ho tuta kreitaro Dia

Full Text

1. Ho tuta kreitaro Dia,
Ĝoj-kantu nun por laŭdo lia!
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Aliĝu vi, helbrila Suno;
Kaj vi, arĝenta, dolĉa Luno!
Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

2. Fortegaj Ventoj de ĉielo;
Nubara mil-kolora belo;
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Orlumo de Matena horo;
Vespera kaj Stelara gloro:
Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

3. Akvaro sur la tuta tero,
Muzikon faru en libero;
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Kaj Fajro, ĉion konsumanta,
Lumadon, varmon, provizante;
Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

4. Patrino Tero, kies manoj
Al ni benadas, terinfanoj;
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Vi Floroj, Fruktoj de l' kamparo;
Al Dio gloru per kantaro. Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

5. Kaj Homoj, kun dankema koro,
Laŭdadu lin en ĉiu horo!
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Eĉ en aflikto kaj sufero,
Ho, fidu Dion kun espero. Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

6. Afabla Morto, fine venu,
Nin per amika mano prenu;
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Konduku nin en hejman ĝojon:
Mem Kristo paŝis vian vojon! Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!

7. Kunkantu ĉio, jubilante,
Kreinton sian adorante,
Aleluja! Aleluja!
Al Dio: Patro, Fil', Spirito —
La Triunu' — sen intermito. Ho, laŭdu! Ho, laŭdu!
Aleluja! Aleluja! Aleluja!
