All Creatures of Our God and King


All Creatures Of Our God And King Hymn

All creatures of our God and King
Lift up your voice and with us sing,
Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou burning sun with golden beam,
Thou silver moon with softer gleam!

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou rushing wind that art so strong
Ye clouds that sail in Heaven along,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou rising moon, in praise rejoice,
Ye lights of evening, find a voice!

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Thou flowing water, pure and clear,
Make music for thy Lord to hear,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
Thou fire so masterful and bright,
That givest man both warmth and light

Dear mother earth, who day by day
Unfoldest blessings on our way,
O praise Him! Alleluia!
The flowers and fruits that in thee grow,
Let them His glory also show.

O praise Him! O praise Him!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!

Gorilla Reunion.

Sunday, May 2, 2010


The first annual Ironman St. George is in the history books and we were there to watch it happen.  Ra, Ammon, Rakai and me spent Saturday night at the finish line.  Well, Ammon and Rakai lost interest and left to hang out with friends but Ra and I were there to experience the exhilaration of the countdown to the finish.

With only a few minutes left to go they announced there were 6 runners left.  Volunteers, spectators and event athletes who had finished earlier cheered them across the finish line.  It was the hour of 17:02 when the final finisher crossed under the sparkle of the fireworks.  They bent the rules just  a little and declared the 57 year old man an Ironman.  It was spectacular.

The Ironman St. George website is already scheduled and the clock is counting down...only 364 days to go.
