All Creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing
Christ has triumphed. Jesus reigneth
Christ by a road before untrod
ascends unto the throne of God
Alleluia Alleluia
Alleluia Alleluia ALLELUIA

Crown him the Lord of Love
Behold his hands and sides
Rich wounds yet visible above
In beauty glorified
No angel in the sky
can fully bear that sight
But downwards bends his burning
on mysteries so bright

Crown him the Lord of Peace
whose power a scepter sways
from pole to pole that wars may cease
absorbed in prayer and praise
his Reign shall know no end
and round His pierced feet
fair flowers of paradise extend
their fragrance
ever sweet

When I survey the wondrous cross
on which my Prince of Glory died
my richest gain I count but loss
and pour contempt on all my pride

Were that whole realm of Nature mine
it would a gift be FAR to small
Love so Amazing
Love so Divine
demands my Soul
My Life
My All

Though I may speak with bravest fire
and have the gift to all inspire
bu have not love my words are vain as sounding brass
and hopeless gain

Though I may give all I posses
and striving so
my love profess
but be not given by Love within
the profit soon turns strangely thin.

I have committed most of these hymns to memory...

who can name them?
