150I. Praise the Lord Who Reigns Above

1 Praise the Lord who reigns above
and keeps his court below;
praise the holy God of love,
and all his greatness show;
praise God for his noble deeds,
praise God for his matchless power;
God from whom all good proceeds
let earth and heaven adore.

2 Celebrate the eternal God
with harp and psaltery,
timbrels soft and cymbals loud
in this high praise agree;
praise God, every tuneful string;
all the reach of heavenly art,
all the powers of music bring,
the music of the heart.

3 God, in whom they move and live,
let every creature sing,
glory to their Maker give,
and homage to their King.
Hallowed be his name beneath,
as in heaven on earth adored;
praise the Lord in every breath,
Let all things praise the Lord.
