Easter 2011

All you works of God, bless the Lord!

photograph from our tour of Vatican City and St. Peter's Basilica near Rome

Hills and mountains, now sing his worth,
all you green things that grow on earth:
seas and rivers, you springs and wells,
beasts and cattle, you birds and whales.
Refrain Raise your voices high, praise and magnify,
all your works of God, bless the Lord!

Come, humanity, sing along,
sing, you people of God, a song:
priests and servants, your Lord now bless,
join, you spirits and souls at rest.
Refrain Raise your voices high, praise and magnify,
all your works of God, bless the Lord!
