141. Praise Ye, Praise Ye the Lord

1 Praise ye, praise ye the Lord
in yonder heav'nly height;
ye angels, all his hosts,
in joyful praise unite.
O sun and moon, declare his might;
show forth his praise, ye stars of light.

2 Praise him, ye highest heav'ns,
praise him, ye clouds that roll,
created by his power
and under his control,
ye heav'ns that stand eternally,
established by his firm decree.

3 Ye creatures in the sea
and creatures on the earth,
Yyur mighty Maker praise,
and tell his matchless worth.
Praise him, ye stormy winds that blow,
ye fire and hail, ye rains and snow.

4 Ye hills and mountains, praise:
each tree and beast and bird;
ye kings and realms of earth,
now let your praise be heard;
by high and low, by young and old,
be all his praise and glory told.

5 By all let God be praised
for he alone is great;
above the earth and heaven
he reigns in glorious state.
Praise him, ye saints who know his grace,
and ever dwell before his face.
