1 Praise the Lord! ye heav'ns adore Him;
Praise Him, angels, in the height.
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him;
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for He hath spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed.
Laws which never shall be broken
For their guidance hath He made.
2 Praise the Lord! for He is glorious;
Never shall His promise fail.
God hath made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation!
Hosts on high, His pow'r proclaim.
Heav'n and earth, and all creation,
Laud and magnify His Name.
3 Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer unto Thee.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
In glad homage bend the knee.
All the saints in heav'n adore thee;
We would bow before Thy throne.
As Thine angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.
