Oh Praise Him, Alleluiah!

Today is one of those days where the Valley is filled with sunlight, blue skies, and lush greenery as far as the eye can see. This unparalleled beauty reminds me of how lucky I am to live in a place where I can look out my window and see not sky rises and stoplights but mountains, rolling hills, and fields filled with green and gold. There is something about beautiful days that – for me – cause joy and peace to just well up inside me. These types of days also call to mind hymns that I grew up with…somehow their swelling, lyric-led, awe-filled vintage goodness just seems so right for these beautiful, timeless moments. With that said, here is what today’s landscape calls to mind:

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 strongYe 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!

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!

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

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!

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

May your day be filled with praise, wonder, admiration, and peace – be blessed!

In Him,

Jennah

    Hi Jennah,
    Thanks for hopping over from Allume and leaving a comment on my blog. I meant to visit you earlier but, as it always happens, God knows what timing is right. “This Is My Father’s World” and He’s given me a yard that needs tending today!

    LOVE this post and the words to that wonderful hymn. Blessings to you today!

    Finally had the opportunity to read this post. We, of course, LOVE the hymns and wish they were sung more often. It’s so refreshing to hear that young people like yourself appreciate them, too!
