PoetryHymn: All Creation Groans and Travails (1866) Words by J M Neale (1818 - 1886)
(sung to the tune of Love Divine All Loves Excelling)
1. All creation groans and travails
Thou, O God, shall hear its groan
For of man and all creation
Thou alike art Lord alone.
2. Pity then Thy guiltless creatures
Who, not less, mans sufferings share
For our sins it is they perish
Let them profit by our prayer.
3. Cast Thine eyes of love and mercy
On the misery of the land
Say to the Destroying Angel
'Tis enough; stay now thine hand.
4. In our homesteads, in our valleys
Through our pasture lands give peace
Through the Goshen of Thine Israel
Bid the grievous murrain cease.
5. Hear and grant the supplications
Like a cloud of incense, sent
Up towards Thy seat of Mercy
Through the forty days of Lent
6 And at last to all Thy servants
When earths troubles shall be oer
Give, O Triune God, a portion
With Thyself for evermore.
* murrain = cattle disease
