Prayer

Many years ago St. Francis of a Assisi wrote a poem about the ways that all creation declares the righteousness of God. This poem has become a well known hymn called, “All Creatures of Our God and King”, and for today’s prayer you can listen to it via the link below. Also, feel free to sing along!

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Oh Praise Him! 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 heaven along
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, 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!

Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
