  1. All creatures of our God and King
     Lift up your voice and with us sing,
        O praise Him! Alleluia!
     Thou burning sun with golden beam
     Thou silver moon with softer gleam!

     O praise Him! O praise Him!
     Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

  2. Thou rushing wind that art so strong,
     Ye clouds that sail in heav'n along,,
        O praise Him! Alleluia!
     Thou rising morn, in praise rejoice,
     Ye lights of evening, find a voice!


  3. Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
     Make music for thy Lord to hear,
        Alleluia! Alleluia!
     Thou fire so masterful and bright,
     That giveth man both warmth and light.


  4. And all ye men of tender heart,
     Forgiving others, take your part,
        O sing ye! Alleluia!
     Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
     Praise God and on Him cast your care!
