All things were made by God the King,
the wind of winter, breath of spring –
and of this wondrous truth we sing:
without him is there nothing made.

Our sun of life, the seed of light,
the fire that brings the end of night
he gave in his majestic might:
without him is there nothing made.

Our seas and all that in them lies,
abundant life hid from our eyes –
rich are the waters God supplies:
without him is there nothing made.

Our earth with all its riches filled,
by heaven formed, by humans tilled –
all argument by God is stilled:
without him is there nothing made.
