Let all of creation,
Give praise to the King!
At the dawning of morning,
I'll rise up and sing!
Let praises abound from the earth, sky and sea,
Each sunrise resounding His great majesty.
Every songbird that sings
Every unfurling flower,
Gives praise to its Maker,
And speaks of His power.
Each snowflake that falls,
Unique in formation,
Tumbling and swirling,
In great celebration, 
Brings praise to the One who has called me by name, 
I will tell of Your glory and speak of Your fame. 
For if I did not praise you,
The rocks would cry out,
The mountains and valleys
Would joyfully shout,
The trees clap their hands,
And the stars with one voice,
Would shine out Your splendour, 
And with gladness rejoice! 
Sunrise over Porthpean, Cornwall, Oct 2019
