Sunday Blessings



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!

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

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.

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!


— Excerpt from "All Creatures of Our God and King" by Francis of Assisi

Have a blessed Sunday, ladies!
"Let the heaven and earth praise him, the seas, and every thing that moveth therein." — Psalm 69:34
P.S. For those of you who read this post yesterday and wondered why I made my British soldier call Halifax home, Kenneth's hometown has now been changed to the properly English Bradford on Avon. Apparently geography isn't my strong suit.
