All Creatures Of our God and King

We just learned about the A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.

Another All Creatures Of our God and King.

In 1225 the old church leader St. Francis of Assisi wrote a poem based on Psalm 148 called the Canticle of the Sun poem.
He writes thanking God for all the gifts he has given us, like the sun, moon, fire and water.

Around 1900 AD a musician in the church named William Draper translated the poem from Italian into English, and wrote the music for the hymn.
