Let All Things Now Living (click title to play)
#125, The Trinity Hymnal (© 1990)

Let all things now living
a song of thanks giving
to God the Creator
triumphantly raise,

who fashioned and made us,
protected and stayed us,
who guides us and leads to
the end of our days.

His banners are o’er us,
his light goes before us,
a pillar of fire
shining forth in the night,

’til shadows have vanished
and darkness is banished,
as forward we travel
from light into light.

His law he enforces:
the stars in their courses,
the sun in its orbit,
obediently shine;

the hills and the mountains,
the rivers and fountains,
the deeps of the ocean
proclaim him divine.

We too should be voicing
our love and rejoicing,
with glad adoration
a song let us raise,

’til all things now living
unite in thanksgiving
to God in the highest,
hosanna and praise!
