1 Angels in the heav’nly height,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Sun and moon, and stars of light,
Praise, O praise the Lord!
All the stormy winds that blow,
Fleecy feathers of the snow,
Streams and rivers, as you flow,
Praise, O praise the Lord!

Refrain:
Praise him, praise him,
Heart and voice in sweet accord
Join to magnify and praise the Lord;
Praise him, praise him,
Grace and peace he will afford,
Praise, O praise the Lord!

2 Little hills and mountains high,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Clouds and rain, and sunny sky,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Fruitful trees and cedars all,
Birds, that in the forest call,
Praise the Lord who cares for all,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! [Refrain]

3 Lads and maidens, young and old,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Ev’ry hour his mercy told,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord!
Let them praise his name alone,
All his love and kindness own,
Till we stand before the throne,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord! [Refrain]
