(traditional, attributed to St Francis)

(D) All creatures of our God and King
(Bm) Lift up your voice and with us sing,

(D) Thou burning sun with golden beam,
(Bm) Thou silver moon with softer gleam!

Refrain
O (A) praise (G) Him! O (A) praise (G) Him!
(G)Alle(A)lu(D)ia! 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!

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.

Refrain

Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show.

Refrain

And all ye men of tender heart,
Forgiving others, take your part,
O sing ye! Alleluia!
Ye who long pain and sorrow bear,
Praise God and on Him cast your care!

Refrain

And thou most kind and gentle Death,
Waiting to hush our latest breath,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou leadest home the child of God,
And Christ our Lord the way hath trod.

Refrain

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!

Man Gave Names to All The Animals (In between the Readings)
by Bob Dylan
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21XFzAoMXUk

Chorus:

(Dm) Man gave names to all the animals
In the (A) beginning, in the (Dm) beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the (A) beginning, long time (Dm) ago

(Dm) He saw an animal that liked to (A) growl
Big furry paws and he liked to (Dm) howl
Great big furry back and furry (G) hair
“Ah, think I’ll call it a (Dm) bear”

Chorus
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal up on a hill
Chewing up so much grass until she was filled
He saw milk comin’ out but he didn’t know how
“Ah, think I’ll call it a cow”

Chorus

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal that liked to snort
Horns on his head and they weren’t too short
It looked like there wasn’t nothin’ that he couldn’t pull
“Ah, think I’ll call it a bull”

Chorus

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal leavin’ a muddy trail
Real dirty face and a curly tail
He wasn’t too small and he wasn’t too big
“Ah, think I’ll call it a pig”

Chorus

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

Next animal that he did meet
Had wool on his back and hooves on his feet
Eating grass on a mountainside so steep
“Ah, think I’ll call it a sheep”

Chorus

Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, in the beginning
Man gave names to all the animals
In the beginning, long time ago

He saw an animal as smooth as glass
Slithering his way through the grass
Saw him disappear by a tree near a lake . . .

Where Will I Shelter My Sheep Tonight (Offering)
Flatt and Scruggs

(F) Where will I shelter my (Bb) sheep (F) tonight
Where is that peaceful (C) land
(F) Where will I shelter my (Bb) sheep (F) tonight
Where the beasts won’t (C) steal my (F) lambs

Chorus

(Bb) We’ve travelled far shepherd (F) dog and I
Weary sin sick and (C) sore
(F) Where will I shelter my (Bb) sheep (F) tonight
I’ll shelter my (C)  sheep at God’s (F) door

My soul is weak and thirsty too
As I cross these burning sands
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
Where is that peaceful land
We’ve travelled far shepherd dog and I
Weary sin sick and sore
Where will I shelter my sheep tonight
I’ll shelter my sheep at God’s door

Wings of The Dove (between the readings)
by Bob Ferguson

Refr. On the wings of a (B) snow-white dove
He sends His (E) pure sweet love
A sign from (B) above
(F#7) On the wings of a (B) dove

(B) When troubles surround us
When evil (A) comes
The body grows (F#7) weak
The spirit grows (B) numb

When (D7) these things (G) beset us
He doesn’t (C) forget us
He sends down his (G) love On the (D7) wings of a (G) dove
Refr.
When Noah had drifted
On the flood many days
He searched for land
In various ways
Troubles he had some
But wasn’t forgotten
God sent him His love On the wings of a dove
Refr. 2X

All Things Bright and Beautiful (Closing)
Words: Ce­cil F. Al­ex­an­der, Hymns for Lit­tle Child­ren, 1848.
Music: Martin Shaw

Refrain

(G) All things (C) bright (G) and (C) beauti(G)ful,
All (Am7) creatures (D7) great and (G) small
(G) All things (C) wise (G) and (C) wonder(G)ful:
The (Am) Lord God (D7) made them (G) all.

(G) Each little (G7) flower that (C) opens,
Each (D) little (D7) bird that (G) sings,
He (G) made their (Em) glowing (Am) col(D7)ors,
He (G) made (C) their (D7) tiny (G) wings.

Refrain

The rich man in his castle,
The poor man at his gate,
He made them, high or lowly,
And ordered their estate.

Refrain

The purple headed mountains,
The river running by,
The sunset and the morning
That brightens up the sky.

Refrain

The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.

Refrain

The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
To gather every day.

Refrain

He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.

Refrain
