1 Praise the Lord! ye heavens, 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;
law 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 power proclaim;
heaven 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.
