Originally written for Reign of Christ Sunday*, the last Sunday of the Church Year.

To be read responsively or by a single voice.

Holy is the Creator of the heavens and the earth
Of sunlight and starlight, forest and ocean.
Holy is the composer of birdsong and thunderstorm.
Let all creation sing praise!

Holy is the One who was born in a stable
Who knelt down in the dust to wash feet.
Holy is the One whose crown was twisted thorns.
Let all creation sing praise!

Holy is the Spirit who confounds the powerful,
Who lifts up the silenced and forgotten.
Holy is the love that breaks the rules of empire.
Let all creation sing praise!

*Traditionally called ‘Christ the King Sunday’
