1 Praise the Lord, sing hallelujah,
from the heavens praise God’s name!
Praise the Lord, our great creator;
all you angels, praise proclaim.

God, we praise you, hallelujah,
for your name alone is high.
And your glory is exalted,
and your glory is exalted,
and your glory is exalted,

they were made at God’s command,
who established them forever,
whose decree shall ever stand.
From the earth, O praise your maker,
raging seas, you creatures all,
fire and hail and snow and vapors,
stormy winds that hear the call. [Refrain]

3 All you fruitful trees and cedars,
ev’ry hill and mountain high,
creeping things and beasts and cattle,
birds that in the heavens fly,
crowns of earth from ev’ry nation,
rulers great, earth’s judges all;
praise together, all you people,
aged ones and children small. [Refrain]
