373. Praise the Lord! ye heavens adore him

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;
laws which never shall be broken
for their guidance he hath 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.
