454. Praise the Lord! You Heav'ns, Adore Him

1 Praise the Lord! You heav'ns, adore him,
praise him, angels in the height;
sun and moon, rejoice before him;
praise him, all you stars and 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 glorious;
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,
praise and glorify his name.

3 Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer as our gift;
young and old, your praise expressing,
our glad songs to you we lift.
All the saints in heav'n adore you;
we would join their glad acclaim;
as your angels serve before you,
so on earth we praise your name.
