O All Ye Works of God

Full Text

1 O all ye works of God now come
to thank him and adore;
O angels sing and bless the Lord
and praise him evermore.

2 O sun and moon and stars of heav’n
your endless praise outpour;
O changing seasons, bless the Lord
and praise him evermore.

3 O heat and cold, O night and day,
O storms and thunder’s roar,
O fields and forests, bless the Lord
and praise him evermore.

4 O earth and sea, O all that live
in water or on shore,
O men and women bless the Lord
and praise him evermore.

5 O let his people bless the Lord
like righteous souls of yore;
let those of holy, humble heart
come praise him evermore.
