Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord

Representative Text

1 Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord,
in heights praise to him be.
2 All ye his angels, praise ye him;
his hosts all, praise him ye.

3 O praise ye him, both sun and moon,
praise him, all stars of light.
4 Ye heav’ns of heav’ns him praise, and floods
above the heavens’ height.

5 Let all the creatures praise the name
of our almighty Lord:
For he commanded, and they were
created by his word.

6 He also, for all times to come,
hath them establish’d sure;
He hath appointed them a law,
which ever shall endure.

7 Praise ye Jehovah from the earth,
dragons, and ev’ry deep:
8 Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind,
his word that fully keep.

9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees,
and all ye cedars high:
10 Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things,
and all ye birds that fly.

11 Kings of the earth, all nations,
princes, earth’s judges all:
12 Both young men, yea, and maidens too,
old men, and children small.

13 Let them God’s name praise; for his name
alone is excellent:
His glory reacheth far above
the earth and firmament.

14 His people’s horn, the praise of all
his saints, exalteth he;
Ev’n Isr’el’s seed, a people near
to him. The Lord praise ye.
