Sights + Sounds of Washington: Praise

Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy LORD to hear,
O praise Him! 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!

Blessed + giving thanks on this feast day of St. Francis!


St Francis of Assisi, Cantico di fratre sole, Song of Brother Sun (around 1225)

To see all of the words to this well known hymn "All Creatures of our God and King" and/or to see more of the history of its translation by William H Draper and first publication in 1919
