1 Praise the Lord, ye glowing fountains;
Praise him, rivers glad and free;
Praise the Lord, ye tow'ring mountains;
Praise him, islands of the sea.
Praise him, torrents of the ocean,
Praise his name with one accord;
Join, O join with deep devotion,
Praise and magnify the Lord!
Praise, O praise the Lord, ye nations!
Praise his name from shore to shore!
Join in love and adoration!
Praise, O praise the Lord!
2 Praise the Lord, ye worlds whose splendors
Gild the pathways of the night;
Unto him your homage render,
Tell the wonders of his might.
Praise the Lord! Make known his glory!
Laud his name and magnify!
Join, O join the wondrous story!
Praise him, heart and sea and sky! [Chorus]
3 Praise, O praise the Lord, ye nations,
Praise the Lord with glad acclaim;
Spread the tidings of salvation,
Sound abroad his glorious name.
Cease, O cease to praise him never!
Join, ye countless host above!
Praise, O praise the Lord forever!
Tell the wonders of his love! [Chorus]
