Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord. From heavens him praise;
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 heavens of heavens him praise, and floods
above the heavens’ height.

5 Let all the creatures praise the name
of the almighty Lord:
for he commanded, and they were
created by his word.
6 He also, for all times to come,
hath them established sure;
he hath appointed them a law,
which ever shall endure.

7 Praise ye Jehovah from the earth,
dragons, and every 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 tribes of men,
princes, earth’s judges all:
12 young men, and youthful maidens too,
old men, and children small.
13 Let them the Lord’s name praise, for it
alone is excellent:
his glory reacheth far above
the earth and firmament.

14 A horn he raiseth for his folk,
to all his saints a praise,
to Israel’s seed so near to him
Jehovah's glory raise.
