Based on a prayer of St Francis of Assisi, the words of All creatures of our God and King were written by William Henry Draper early in the twentieth century, but the popular melody 'Lasst uns erfreuen' is much older. This German Easter hymn-tune dates from 1623, when it was published by Friedrich Spee as part of a collection of church music. The tune became widespread in English hymn books when Vaughan Williams made his arrangement in 1906.
