Louez Le Seigneur

Representative Text

1 Louez le Seigneur au plus haut des cieux;
Chantez sa grandeur, saints anges de Dieu!
Proclamez sa gloire, vous qu’il a créés
Chantez sa victoire dans l’éternité!

2 Louez le Seigneur, vous ses rachetés!
De tout votre coeur, chantez ses bontés!
Toujours il envoie d’en haut son Esprit,
Promesse de joie pour qui s’offre à lui.

3 Louez le Seigneur qui vient jusqu’à nous!
Devant le Sauveur, tombez à genoux!
Adorez la grâce du prince de paix
Car rien ne surpasse le don qu’il nous fait.

4 Louez le Seigneur, le Dieu trois fois saint!
Chantez le bonheur du règne qui vient!
Le peuple fidèle attend que son Dieu
Enfin renouvelle la terre et les cieux.
