Praise to the Lord, the Almighty,
Who rules all creation;
O my soul, praise him, at all times
Your health and salvation.
Come, all who hear:
Brothers and sisters draw near,
Joining in glad adoration.

Praise to the Lord, above all things
So mightily reigning,
Keeping us safe at his side,
And so gently sustaining.
Have you not seen how
All you needed has been
Met by God's gracious ordaining?

Praise to the Lord who will
Prosper our work and defend us;
Surely his goodness and mercy
Will daily attend us:
Ponder anew what the
Almighty can do,
Who out of love
Will befriend us.

Praise to the Lord!
O let all that is in me adore him!
All that has life and breath
Come now with praises before him!
Let the Amen sound from
God's people again:
Gladly with praise we adore him.

God of the Sparrow

(VU 229)

God of the sparrow
God of the whale
God of the swirling stars
How does the creature say Awe
How does the creature say Praise

God of the earthquake
God of the storm
God of the trumpet blast
How does the creature cry Woe
How does the creature cry Save


God of the rainbow
God of the cross
God of the empty grave
How does the creature say Grace
How does the creature say Thanks

God of the hungry
God of the sick
God of the prodigal
How does the creature say Care
How does the creature say Life


God of the neighbour
God of the foe
God of the pruning hook
How does the creature say Love
How does the creature say Peace

God of the ages
God near at hand
God of the loving heart
How do your children say Joy
How do your children say Home.

All Praise to You

(VU 297)

All praise to you, O God of all creation:
You made the world, and it is yours alone.
The Planet earth you spun in its location
Amid the stars adorning heaven's dome.
We lease the earth but for a life's duration,
Yet for this life it is our cherished home.

With wondrous grace you clothed the earth in splendour;
With teeming life you filled the sea and land.
Instil in us a sense of awe and wonder
When we behold the bounty of your hand.
Then when we hear the voice of bird or thunder,
We hear the voice our faith can understand.

To tend the earth is our entrusted duty,
For earth is ours to use and not abuse.
O gracious God, true source of all resources,
Forgive our greed that wields destruction's sword.
Then let us serve as wise and faithful stewards
While earth gives glory to creation's Lord.

G. F. Handel
(1685 - 1759)

And now it's that time again --
One more cuppa as we listen to a couple of
good old hymns....

Come, O Fount of Every Blessing

Come, thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount I'm fixed upon it
Mount of God's redeeming love.

Dear God. Who Loves All Humankind

Dear Lord and Father of mankind,
Forgive our foolish ways;
Reclothe us in our rightful mind,
In purer lives thy service find,
In deeper reverence, praise.
