Welsh)Let all things now living a song of thanksgivingto God the Creator triumphantly raise,who fashioned and made us, protected and stayed us,who guides us and leads to the end of our days.God’s banners fly o’er us; God’s light goes before us,a pillar of fire shining forth in the night,till shadows have vanished and darkness is banished,as forward we travel from light into light.The law God enforces, the stars in their courses,and sun in its orbit obediently shine;the hills and the mountains, the rivers and fountains,the deeps of the ocean proclaim the Divine.We, too, should be voicing our love and rejoicing;with glad adoration a song let us raise,till all things now living unite in thanksgiving:To God in the highest hosanna and praise!
