Creator God

This hymns was an entry in the CEL Environment Hymn competition. This hymn was sung at CEL's Conference in Sheffield in 2002, and made a joyful and moving ending to the service.

Tune: 10.10.10.4. Sine Nomine (Vaughan Williams 1872-1958) - Words usually sung to this tune: For All the Saints H&P 814, HON 134

1.

Creator God, your children's voices rise,
Fed by your earth, uplifted by your skies,
Thankful for all its beauty and surprise,
Praise ever singing, ever singing.

2.

Where forests range their canopies of trees,
May we sustain such vital gifts as these,
Let woodland shelter still resound with bees,
Birds ever singing, ever, singing.

3.

Beneath the moon the ocean lifts its tide,
Help us to curb our poisoned human pride
Still may the whales, the fish and dolphins ride
Seas ever singing, ever singing

4. From south to north, from deeps to thinnest air,
Kingdoms of creatures flourish everywhere,
Open our hearts and let us learn to share
Life ever singing, ever singing.

5. God gave the word, and earth spins out in space,
Made us custodians of this glorious place,
Then let us give the future human race
Worlds ever singing, ever singing.
