Creator God, You Have Conferred
HYMN 12
From HYMNS FOR CREATURES GREAT & SMALL

  1. Creator God, you have conferred
    On fallible humanity
    Dominion over beast and bird
    And all that moves on land and sea;
    Lord, help us ever to recall
    You made them all, you love them all.
     
  2. The stabled cattle first adored
    The new-born Christ on Christmas morn,
    And on a donkey was the Lord
    Triumphant to his passion borne;
    God, living on the earth he made,
    Scorned not those humble creatures' aid.
     
  3. But humans in their vanity
    Assume the world to be their own,
    And with their mindless cruelty
    They make the whole creation groan;
    Lord, help us ever to recall
    You made all creatures great and small.
     
  4. For all your creatures make us care,
    Impatience help us to restrain,
    Remembering that with us they share
    Our need of love, our fear of pain,
    And grant us skill and gentleness
    To succour them when in distress.
     
  5. Bring near, O Lord, that perfect day
    Of loving-kindness, peace and joy,
    When none shall on another prey
    And none shall injure or destroy,
    And in a world from sin set free
    All creatures live in harmony.

Written by Arthur R. Day
Could be sung to ‘Melita’ (88.88.88.)
