All creatures of our God and King,
lift up your voice and with us sing:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Bright burning sun with golden beam,
soft shining moon with silver gleam,
O praise him, O praise him,
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Swift rushing wind so wild and strong,
white clouds that sail in Heaven along,
O praise him, alleluia!
New rising dawn in praise rejoice,
you lights of evening find a voice;
O praise him…

Cool flowing water, pure and clear,
make music for your Lord to hear,
Alleluia, alleluia!
Fierce fire so masterful and bright
giving to us both warmth and light,
O praise him…

Let all things their Creator bless,
and worship him in lowliness,
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise, praise the Father, praise the Son,
and praise the Spirit, Three-in-One,
O praise him…
