PCXLVIIIa. From heaven O praise the Lord

1 From heaven O praise the Lord,
Him praise the heights within.
2 All's angels praise afford,
All's armies praise ye him.
3 O give him praise,
Sun and moon bright, all stars of light
O give him praise.

4 Ye heav'ns of heav'ns him praise.
'Bove heav'ns ye waters clear.
5 The Lord's name let them praise:
For he spake made they were.
6 Them stablish'd he
For ever and aye; Nor pass away
Shall his decree.

7 Praise God from earth below,
Ye dragons and each deep
8 Fire, hail and mist, and snow,
Whirlwinds his word which keep.
9 Mountains also
And hills all ye: Each fruitful tree,
All cedars too,

10 Beasts, also cattle all,
Things creeping, fowls that fly.
11 Earth's kings, and people all,
Peers all, earth's judges high.
12 Do ye always,
Young men and maids, Old men and babes.
13 The Lord's name praise.

For his name's only high,
Glory 'bove earth and skies.
14 His folks horn he lifts high:
Of all the saints the praise.
The sons who be,
Of Isra'l dear, his people near,
The Lord praise ye.
