“All Creatures of Our God and King” (St. Francis of Assisi)

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 morn in praise rejoice, Ye lights of evening, find a voice,
O praise Him, O praise Him, Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!

F is for…

If you are a GMK follower you should already have this week’s verse memorized.
I quote it weekly under Psalm 113:3 Moments. Unfortunately I wasn’t taking pictures of the sunsets this week because the photo memory on my iphone is completely full! So here’s a sunset pic from a few months ago I found while deleting hundreds of other sunsets from my phone.

F is for… “From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!” Psalm 113:3

Hymn of the Week: “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” (Beethoven/Van Dyke)

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.

“The Heavens Declare Thy Glory, Lord” Watts/Mason

The heavens declare Thy glory, Lord; In every star Thy wisdom shines;
but when our eyes behold Thy Word, we read Thy name in fairer lines.

The rolling sun, the changing light, and night and day, Thy power confess;
But the blest volume Thou hast writ reveals Thy justice and Thy grace.

Sun, moon, and stars convey Thy praise round the whole earth and never stand;
So when Thy truth began its race, it touched and glanced on every land.

Nor shall Thy spreading gospel rest till through the world Thy truth has run;
Till Christ has all the nations blest that see the light, or feel the sun.
