VERSE 1:
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!

VERSE 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,
O praise Him, O praise Him, Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

VERSE 3:
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!

VERSE 4:
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!
