All Creatures of Our God and King

Author: St. Francis of Assisi (1225)
Copyright: Public Domain
Psalter Hymnal (Gray) #431

All creatures of our God and King,
lift up your voice and with us sing
alleluia, alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
thou silver moon with softer gleam,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

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,
O praise him, O praise him,
alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

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!

CLOSING SONG

Crown Him with Many Crowns

Author : Matthew Bridges (1851)
Tune: DIADEMATA (Elvey)
Copyright: Public Domain
Lift Up Your Hearts #223

Crown him with many crowns,
the Lamb upon his throne,
while heaven’s eternal anthem drowns
all music but its own!
Awake, my soul, and sing
of him who died to be,
your Savior and your matchless king
through all eternity.

Crown him the Lord of life,
triumphant o’er the grave,
who rose victorious from the strife
for those he came to save.
His glories now we sing
who died and reigns on high,
He died eternal life to bring,
and lives that death may die.

Crown him the Lord of peace,
His kingdom is at hand.
From pole to pole let warfare cease
and Christ rule every land!
All hail, Redeemer, hail!
for you have died for me.
Your praise shall never, never fail
throughout eternity.

God’s Blessing

How lovely on the mountains
Are the feet of him
Who brings good news, good news
Announcing peace, proclaiming
News of happiness.

Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
Our God reigns! Our God reigns!
