Representative Text

1 Praise the Lord of heaven;
Praise him in the height!
Praise him, all you angels;
Praise him, stars and light;
Praise him, earth and waters,
Praise him, all you skies;
When his word commanded,
All things did arise.

2 Praise the Lord, you fountains
Of the depths and seas,
Rocks and hills and mountains,
Cedars and all trees;
Praise him, clouds and vapors,
Snow and hail and fire,
Nature all fulfilling
Only his desire.

3 Praise him, all you nations,
Rulers and all kings;
Praise him, men and women,
All created things.
Glorious and mighty
Is his name alone;
All the earth his footstool,
Heaven is his throne.

Author: T. B. Browne

Browne, Thomas Briarly, of Wellington, was the author of The Oxford Divines not Members of the Church of England, 1839; Thoughts of the Times, 1838; and the National Bankruptcy and other Poems, Lond., Pickering, 1844. From this last work a version of the 148th Psalm has come into somewhat extensive use in English-speaking countries. It is the well-known "Praise the Lord of heaven, praise Him in the height."
