Sunday Hymns of the Past – All Creatures of our God and King

Today’s hymn reflects yet another aspect seemingly missing from the modern ‘Christian’ music of today, Soli Deo Gloria. Glory to God Alone. Much of what we hear today is man centered, feelings based, and even unbiblical. This is not praising God, but rather praising man and his ability to vocalize. This beautiful hymn not only gives the glory and honor to the only one true King, it calls all creatures to do the same! I’m thankful to God that we have access to these hymns. Do you have a favorite hymn, dear ones? I’d love to hear what it is!

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 ev’ning find a voice!

O praise Him, O praise Him!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

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!

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!
