GUEST,Anon Lyr Req: Looking for hymn set to 'Ode to Joy' (73* d) ADD: God Created Earth and Heaven 23 Feb 11


Hey Mike,

This is the one I recall as well...perhaps it does have something to do with denomination, as I'm RC. It was always sung to the tune of Beethoven's "Ode to Joy", more or less.

"God Created Earth and Heaven"

God created earth and heaven,
God commanded light to be,
Separated light from darkness,
Set the bounds for land and sea.
While God's spirit on the waters,
In His love did gently brood.
Life on earth began to quicken,
And God saw that it was good.

God made man in his own image,
Gave him power to think and choose;
Made Him Lord of all creation,
Everything in his to use.
Let us praise our loving Father,
Let us thank Him as we should.
For the gifts of His creation,
Which His love has made so good.

(finally found on an Ottawa Catholic School Board website.)
