All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
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!
O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! *
“Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!” The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.” [Rev. 5:13-14]
“Let Heaven and earth praise Him, the seas and all that move in them.” [Psalm 69:34]
* Words: Francis of Assisi, circa 1225
(Cantico di fratre sole, Song of Brother Sun).
He wrote this hymn shortly before his death,
but it was not published for almost 400 years.
