1 Praise the Lord of heaven!
Praise him in the height;
Praise him, all you angels;
Praise him, stars and light;!
Praise him, clouds and waters
Which, above the skies,
When his word commanded
Did established rise!

2 Praise the Lord, you fountains
Of the deeps and seas,
Rocks and hills and mountains,
Cedars and all trees!
Praise him, clouds and vapors,
Snow and hail and fire,
Stormy wind, fulfilling
Only his desire.

3 Praise him, fowl and cattle,
Princes and all kings;
Praise him, men and women,
All created things;
For the name of God is
Excellent alone
Over earth his footstool,
Over heav'n his throne!

Browne, Thomas Briarly, of Wellington, was the author of The Oxford Divines not Members of the Church of England, 1839; Thoughts of the Times, 1838; and the National Bankruptcy and other Poems, Lond., Pickering, 1844. From this last work a version of the 148th Psalm has come into somewhat extensive use in English-speaking countries. It is the well-known "Praise the Lord of heaven, praise Him in the height."
