On Fire

Can you tell I love the colors of Fall?
It brings great joy to my heart.
I find myself singing this song out loud
and in my heart on a daily basis lately!
Thought I'd share it with you.

All Creatures of Our God and King

(Words: Francis of Assisi, cir­ca 1225 (Can­ti­co di frat­re so­le, Song of Bro­ther Sun). He wrote this hymn short­ly be­fore his death, but it was not pub­lished for al­most 400 years. Trans­lat­ed to Eng­lish by Wil­liam H. Drap­er for a child­ren’s Whit­sun­tide fes­ti­val in Leeds, Eng­land; first ap­peared in the Pub­lic School Hymn Book, 1919.
Music: Lasst Uns Er­freu­enAuss­er­le­se­ne Ca­thol­ische Geist­liche Kirch­en­ge­säng(Köln, Ger­ma­ny: Pe­ter von Brach­el, 1623); har­mo­ny by Ralph Vaughan Wil­liams in The Eng­lish Hymn­al (Lon­don: Ox­ford Un­i­ver­si­ty Press, 1906), num­ber 519 (MI­DIscore).)

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 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.

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.

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

(I know this isn't a 'Fall' painting 
but her dress reminded me of the colors of Fall.....
and I love this painting and had to share it!)


Here's to a joyous, colorful day for you all.
Sending hugs and kisses your way,
dear friends!

  1. Deb - I'm so glad you posted this song, it made my morning. This song is one of my most favorite. It came to life for me the first time I watched the LDS video: Mountain of the Lord. Thanks for sharing. - Marsha
