823. Praise the Lord! O Heavens

1 Praise the Lord! O heav'ns, adore him;
praise him, angels, in the height;
sun and moon, rejoice before him;
praise him, gleaming stars of light.
Praise the Lord, for he has spoken;
worlds his mighty voice obeyed:
laws which never shall be broken
for their guidance he has made.

2 Praise the Lord, for he is gracious;
never shall his promise fail.
God has 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!
