551. Praise the Lord of Heaven

1 Praise the Lord of heaven;
Praise him in the height!
Praise him, all you angels;
Praise him, stars and light;
Praise him, earth and waters
Praise him, all you skies;
When his word commanded,
All things did arise.

2 Praise the Lord, you fountains
Of the depths and seas,
Rocks and hills and mountains,
Cedars and all trees;
Praise him, clouds and vapors,
Snow and hail and fire,
Nature all fulfilling
Only his desire.

3 Praise him, all you nations,
Rulers and all kings;
Praise him, men and women,
All created things.
Glorious and mighty
Is his name alone;
All the earth his footstool,
Heaven is his throne.
