Let every creature join
to praise th'eternal God;
the heavenly hosts begin the song,
and sound God's name abroad;
the sun with golden beams,
the moon with paler rays,
the starry lights, like twinkling flames,
display their Maker’s praise.
Let those of wide command
extol the gracious Lord;
let judges yield to God’s own hand,
be guided by his word.
By all the earth-born race
his honors be expressed;
but saints that know his heavenly grace
should learn to praise him best.
From mountains near the sky
let songs of joy resound!
From humble souls to leaders high,
from vales and hills around,
let all our zeal be shown
by grateful songs we raise;
God is the Lord! His name alone
deserves our endless praise!
