1 Praise the Lord who reigns above and keeps his court below;
praise the holy God of love and all his greatness show;
praise him for his noble deeds; praise him for his matchless power;
him from whom all good proceeds let earth and heaven adore.
2 Celebrate th’eternal God with harp and psaltery,
timbrels soft and cymbals loud in this high praise agree;
praise him, 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 his name beneath, as in heaven on earth adored;
praise the Lord in every breath, let all things praise the Lord.
