1 Give laud unto the Lord,
from heav'n that is so high;
Praise him in deed and word
above the starry sky:
And also ye,
his angels all,
armies royal,
Praise joyfully.

2 Praise him both moon and sun,
which are so clear and bright;
The same of you be done,
ye glittering stars of light.
And ye no less,
ye heavens fair,
Clouds of the air,
his praise express:

3 For at his word they were
all formed as we see,
At his voice did appear
all things in their degree,
Which he set fast;
to them he made
A law and trade
always to last.

4 Extol and praise God's Name
on earth, ye dragons fell;
All deeps do ye the same,
for it becomes you well,
The same do ye,
fire, hail, ice, snow,
And storms that blow
at his decree:

5 The hills and mountains all,
and trees that fruitful are,
The cedars great and tall,
his worthy praise declare;
Beasts and cattle,
Yea, birds of wing,
And worms creeping,
that on earth dwell:

6 All kings both great and small,
with all their pompous train,
Princes and judges all
that in the world remain,
Exalt his Name:
young men and maids,
Old men and babes,
Do ye the same.

7 For his Name shall we prove
to be most excellent,
Whose praise is far above
the earth and firmament:
For sure he shall
exalt with bliss
The horn of his,
And help them all.

8 His saints all shall forth tell
his praise and worthiness,
he sons of Israel,
each one both more and less:
And also they,
that with good will
His words fulfil,
And him obey.
