All Creatures Of Our God And King : About

This well-loved hymn, a rousing proclamation of God’s many and diverse creations, originates in the poem ‘Song of All Creatures’ (or ‘Canticle of the Sun’) written by St Francis of Assisi, based on Psalm 148. The words were translated and paraphrased by English hymnwriter William H. Draper (1855-1933) for a children’s Pentecost festival into the hymn we recognise today. The tune ‘Lasst uns erfreuen’ is a 17th-century German folk melody, in this version harmonised by Ralph Vaughan Williams, a composer known for his interest in folksong which he incorporated into many of his original works.

All Creatures Of Our God And King : Lyrics

1. All creatures of our God and King,
Lift up your voices, let us sing:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Bright brother sun with golden beams,
Clear sister moon with softer gleams,
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

2. Swift rushing winds, so wild and strong,
High clouds that sail in heavens along.
O praise him, alleluia!
New-breaking morn, in praise rejoice,
And lights of evening, find a voice:

3. Cool flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for your Lord to hear,
Alleluia, alleluia!
Fire, with your flames so fierce and bright,
Giving to all both warmth and light:

4. Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfolds God’s blessings on our way,
O praise him, alleluia!
All flowers and fruits that in you grow,
Let them his glory also show:

5. And all who are of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part,
O praise him, alleluia!
All who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and cast on him your care:

6. And you, most kind and gentle death,
Waiting to hush our final breath,
O praise him, alleluia!
You homeward lead the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way has trod:

7. Let all things their Creator bless,
And worship God in humbleness,
O praise him, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
And praise the Spirit, Three in One:
