CORO:
All things bright and beautiful
All creatures great and small,
All wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all.

Every little flower that opens
Every little bird that sings
He made their colors bright,
He made his little wings. (Choir)

the cold wind in winter,
the pleasant summer sun,
the ripe fruit in the garden,
He made every one of them. (Choir)

He gave us eyes to see
And lips we could say
How great is Almighty God
Who did everything right. (Choir)

Hallelujah!
Moon and stars, morning sun, clouds and rain.
Everyone sings, everyone sings
Raise your voices to the king
Praise your name, your holy name

Hallelujah!
Fruit trees, tall cedars, green forests, everyone sings, everyone sings
Raise your voices to the king
Glorified be thy name, thy holy name Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!
The fox and the sparrow, wild and tame.
Everyone sings, everyone sings
Raise your voices to the king
Glorified be thy name, thy holy name Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!
Men and angels, queens and princes, little baby
We all sing, we all sing
Raise our voices to the king
Glorified be thy name, thy holy name Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!

Some wandered through the wastelands of the desert
Some were imprisoned in prison chains
Some left on ships on the ocean
Some chose foolish ways

Chor:
He who is wise listens, listens
He who is wise listens, listens
He who is wise listens, listens
We cry out to the Lord
We cry out to the Lord

We roam the deserts, we're locked in prison chains
We set out like ships on the ocean
We choose foolish paths (Chorus)

Saint Francis of Assisi/William Henry Draper

All creatures of our God and King,
Raise your voice and sing with us
Alleluia! Alleluia!
You burning sun with a golden ray,
Your silvery moon with a softer glow,
Oh yes, oh yes!
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah!

May all things bless their Creator
And worship him humbly
Oh, Lob, Halleluja!
Praise be, Praise be to the Father, Praise be to the Son
And praise the Spirit, three in one
O praise him, o praise him! Hallelujah Hallelujah. Hallelujah!

Draw me with morning stars. Wake me up with beauty
sprout a daisy in the backyard
They remind me of it every day

Koro:
In your love we are content
alone, always always
in the morning, at night
alone, never, always

You wrote the song that is in our hearts, a song of joy and wonder
Every day is a new beginning
Your love makes us younger (Koro)

Are you strong enough to take it slow? The sun, the moon so patient
We wait, we see Your mercy flow to every tribe and nation

See the beauty of the Lord
as the sun goes away
In a day or a thousand years, your love never tires

Tell me can the darkness hide me?
Tell me can the darkness hide me?
Even when the sun isn't shining?
Tell me can the darkness hide me?

You don't even look for me in the deepest valley
you hold me tight

Tell me will you always listen?
Tell me will you always listen?
Even when the storm is high?
Tell me will you always listen?

Yes, even when I'm scared and shaking, you come looking for me.
You talk to me about your love
Even when I'm scared and shaking, you're looking for me
You talk to me about your love

Tell me will you ever leave me?
Tell me will you ever leave me?
Even if my friends forget me?
Tell me will you ever leave me?

No, even when I'm angry and hiding, come and find me
you stay close to me
Even when I'm scared and shaking, you're looking for me

You talk to me about your love
Even in the deepest valley you look for me
you cling to me

Tell me can the darkness hide me?
Tell me will you always listen?
Tell me will you ever leave me?

Was it a hit? Was it a growl?
Was it a hit?
Is he hiding under my bed?
I have a light, but what's in the shadows of the night?
Will I have to fight, okay, I'm scared, I'm scared!

When I'm scared, I trust in you
I will lie down and sleep in peace.
Because what you say is true
You know every hair on my head
And you're bigger than any monster under my bed

So when I'm sleepy
And my closet is creepy
I try not to call Mom and Dad, but I start to cry.
I won't fear for you, say you're near
So I call to you, you always listen.

God taking care of me
never go to sleep
You know me inside and out
And you promised that you would keep me

You know every hair on my head and
You're bigger than any monster under my bed.

when i'm scared
I'll put my trust in you
I will lie down and sleep in peace.
Because what you say is true
You know every hair on my head and
You're bigger than any monster under my bed.

If I had wings like a dove
I could fly, I could fly
If I had a room in your house
I could hide, I could hide

The swallow nests, finds its rest
There on the temple walls
under your wings
she sings her song
The Lord God hears your call

Like a desert owl in the night
I stay awake, I stay awake
Like a lonely sparrow on the roof
I'll wait, I'll wait

We run, we roam, you sing to us at home
We're flying back to your call
Under your wings we sing your song
The Lord God sustains us all.

hide me hide me
Hide me in the shadow of your wings.

If I had wings like a dove
I could fly, I could fly
If I had a room in your house
I could hide, I could hide
I could hide, I could hide

hide me hide me
Hide me in the shadow of your wings.
Oh hide me, hide me...

In Christ we offer
Anything he offered
the perfect offer
Christ is the life of the world.
Christ is the life of the world.

then we remember
everything i remembered
All the love came back
Christ is the life of the world.
Christ is the life of the world.

Let's stand up, let's raise our hearts
Let's stand up, let's raise our hearts
It is good to lift up the heart to the Lord.

sent beauty
bring all things into harmony
radiant with holiness
Christ is the life of the world.
Christ is the life of the world.
Christ is the life of the world.

Lift up your eyes and see who created these stars
One who leads his army by numbers
He calls everyone by name
By the magnitude of his great power
And the strength of your power. None of them are missing.

Look up, look up and you will see
In the dark we all see the stars
Connect the dots see pictures
These whispers of the one who made the stars

Koro:
Stars, stars, stars

Stars to start the world
Stars to scream, scream, scream: Christ is born!
stars to crown him king
Of all sun, moon and stars

Koro

He calls everyone by name, no one is missing, their children will be
So many, so many, so many
Like the stars, the stars, the stars

Koro

Koro:
Teach us to count our days
May we apply our hearts to Your ways
Oh, teach us to count our days
With wisdom and grace, wisdom and grace, wisdom and grace

They were our home and our dwelling in all generations
Before the earth and the mountains were formed
You are God

Koro

Now the span of our lives
It's pain and work.
When the days go by like grass
How long are we going?

Koro

that the work of our hands
brings you praise
show us your favour
O lay down the work of our hands
let your kingdom come

Koro
