Ye Watchers And Ye Holy Ones (Lasst Uns Erfreuen – 4 Verses) – Organ

Ye Watchers And Ye Holy Ones ~ Lyrics

1. Ye watchers and ye holy ones,
Bright seraphs, cherubim, and thrones,
Raise the glad strain, Alleluia!
Cry out, dominions, princedoms, powers,
Virtues, archangels, angels’ choirs,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

2. O higher than the cherubim,
More glorious than the seraphim,
Lead their praises, Alleluia!
Thou Bearer of the eternal Word,
Most gracious, magnify the Lord,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

3. Respond, ye souls in endless rest,
Ye patriarchs and prophets blest,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Ye holy Twelve, ye martyrs strong,
All saints triumphant, raise the song,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

4. O friend, in gladness let us sing,
Supernal anthems echoing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
To God the Father, God the Son,
And God the Spirit, Three in One,
Alleluia! Alleluia!

All Creatures Of Our God And King (Lasst Uns Erfreuen -7 Verses) – Organ

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:
Refrain.

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:
Refrain.

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:
Refrain.

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:
Refrain.

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:
Refrain.

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:
Refrain.
