Lord God and Maker of All Things

Creation is Upheld by You

Lord God and Maker of All Things was written by the Benedictine Nuns of the Conventus of Our Lady of Consolation of Stanbrook Abbey in North Yorkshire, England. It was first published in 1971 in the Stanbrook Abbey Hymnal. At that time the contempletive order was based in a Victorian abbey in Worcestershire, but they have recently moved to a new home in the North York Moors National Park. Lord God and Maker of All Things is set to the the old French Church melody, Auctoritate Saeculi from the Poitiers Antiphoner (1746). An alternative tune that can also be used is Eisenach, as featured in the following video. In the Liturgy of the Hours it is sung during Ordinary Time for Mid-afternoon Prayer.

Alternative Tune: Eisenach
