1 Praise the Lord in heavenly places,
Ye, His hosts and angels bright;
Sun and moon declare His glory,
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
2 Let the sky and clouds forever
Praise His glorious majesty;
At His word they were created,
Ordered by His firm decree.
3 In the earth let all things praise Him,
Seas and all that they contain,
Stormy winds that do His pleasure,
hail and lightning, snow and rain.
4 Hills and mountains, praise your Maker,
Praise Him, all ye flocks and herds,
Woods and fields and fruitful vineyards,
Creeping things and flying birds.
5 Kings and princes, bow before Him,
Earthly judges, give Him praise,
All ye people, tell His glory,
Old and young, your voices raise.
6 Praise His Name with praise unending,
For His Name alone is great;
Over heaven and earth exalted,
Reigns the Lord in kingly state.
7 He has greatly blessed His people,
Therefore, all ye saints, give praise;
Chosen of the Lord and precious,
Thankful hallelujahs raise.
