    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 Heaven along,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
    Ye lights of evening, find a voice!


    Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
    Make music for thy Lord to hear,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Thou fire so masterful and bright,
    That givest man both warmth and light.


    Dear mother earth, who day by day
    Unfoldest blessings on our way,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
    Let them His glory also show.


    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!

    And thou most kind and gentle Death,
    Waiting to hush our latest breath,
    O praise Him! Alleluia!
    Thou leadest home the child of God,
    And Christ our Lord the way hath trod.


    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!

    Been listening to some David Crowder have we?? [​IMG]

    We've been doing this one in church for a couple of months now, with just two accoustic guitars and two vocalist. It is an awesome song and our folks love it. (We do it a lot like the David Crowder Band)

    I love that song. When you think about all the things that are created by God, it staggers the imagination. One of my hobbies is astronomy. When I pull out the scope to look at the planets, that is the exact thought that goes through my mind. We worry about this and that, and all the time we are in the care of a loving God who can create all this. I think if He can do that, He can take care of us, its a matter of living that way and not just saying it.

    [​IMG] Just for the record David Crowder is the worship leader at a Baptist church in Texas. Actually it is the church that lost their pastor in a baptism accident.

    I suppose if I wanted to be nitpicky, I could take issue with those lines. However, I'm not in a nitpicky mood. I love that song, and most of Crowder's stuff that I've heard.

    Y'all do know that David Crowder didn't write that song, don't you?

    Words by St Francis of Assisi (1182-1226)
    Translation by William Henry Draper (1855-1933)

    ==Sorry to disappoint but I am not familiar with The David Crowder Band. However I will check them out. I actually enjoy listening to some of the old hymns. I have about five cds full of them (and four tapes).

    One of my favorite cds is a hard rock type version of several old hymns. Great versions of songs like "O Worship The King", "How Great Thou Art", and my favorite "Doxology". You can listen to some samples on the Amazon.com page... Here

    I also have two of John MacArthur's cds.."What Wondrous Love Is This" and "O Worship The King". Great cds btw. Mostly piano and the Master's choir with MacArthur, Joni Eareckson Tada, and Robert & Bobbie Wolemuth.

    When I posted the post (above) I was listening to an organ hymns cd I purchased from Walmart. :D

    I will check out the David Crowder band though.

    In Christ,

    ==Amen to that! That is one of the reasons I have often thought about buying a good telescope. Around this part of the woods I can go outside at night and the stars are just amazing. I have thought it would be neat to purchase a telescope for those nights. Sadly I only have that desire when I am looking at the night sky, the rest of the time I have little interest in buying a telescope. [​IMG]

    Words: Francis of Assisi, cir­ca 1225 (Can­ti­co di frat­re so­le, Song of Bro­ther Sun). He wrote this hymn short­ly be­fore his death, but it was not pub­lished for al­most 400 years. Trans­lat­ed to Eng­lish by Wil­liam H. Drap­er for a child­ren’s Whit­sun­tide fes­ti­val in Leeds, Eng­land; first ap­peared in the Pub­lic School Hymn Book, 1919.

    Music: “Lasst Uns Er­freu­en,” Auss­er­le­se­ne Ca­thol­ische Geist­liche Kirch­en­ge­säng (Köln, Ger­ma­ny: Pe­ter von Brach­el, 1623); har­mo­ny by Ralph Vaughan Wil­liams in The Eng­lish Hymn­al (Lon­don: Ox­ford Un­i­ver­si­ty Press, 1906), num­ber 519
