Bless Ye the Lord: Praise Song of the Three Holy Children (Hardcover)
Usually arrives at our store within 4-7 days
Here is the song of three children who are calling upon all of creation--the angels, heavenly bodies, seasons, waters, hills, plants, animals, birds, and men--to exalt and glorify the Lord. "Bless ye the Lord; praise Him, and magnify Him forever . . ." Their lyrical song of praise and gratitude--reminiscent of St. Francis of Assisi's "Canticle of the Sun"--appears in the Book of Daniel in the oldest versions of the Christian Bible, and in the Apocrypha of later editions. Their Hebrew names were Ananias, Azarias, and Misael, and they were also known by their Babylonian names of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Radiant illustrations by artist Frances Tyrrell show scenes of their idyllic childhood days, when the three children were free to explore the hills, fields, and streams of their homeland.
