All Creation was Renewed

Painting by Bartolome Murillo - Courtesy Wikipedia 

All Creation was Renewed is written by the Benedictine Nuns of Stanbrook Abbey. It is set to the tune, Gott Sei Dank (Lubeck) by the Lutheran pastor and theologian, Johann Anastasius Freylinghausen (1670-1739). His Geistreiches Gesangsbuch of 1704 (also known as Freylinghausen's Songbook), in which Gott Sei Dank was first published, is considered an importatant advancement in the development and organization of hymnals. In the Divine Office (1974), All Creation was Renewed is used with Evening Prayer I on the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord.

Tune: Gott sei dank (Lübeck)
