ALL CREATURES OF OUR GOD AND KING

  Lyrics

Verse 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!

Verse 2
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!

Verse 3
All the redeemed washed by his blood
Come and rejoice in his great love
O praise him!  Alleluia!
Christ has defeated every sin
Cast all your burdens now on him
O praise him!  O praise him!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

Verse 4
He shall return in pow’r to reign
Heaven and earth will join to say
O praise him!  Alleluia!
Then who shall fall on bended knee
All creatures of our God and King
O praise him!  O praise him!
Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

  Sample Introduction

The Psalmist writes, ‘When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?’ The whole universe exists through and for Jesus, the Word of God who shaped the earth and then became human in order to die in our place. This song takes us on the same journey as the Psalmist – from marvelling at creation, to wondering at God’s mercy to us – and then carries us on, to looking ahead to when creation is released from its bondage to decay at Jesus’ return and we will praise him forevermore.
