Praise ye the Lord, all nature join. In work and worship so divine

Representative Text

1 Praise ye the Lord; all nature join
In work and worship so divine;
Let heav’n and earth unite and raise
High hallelujahs to His praise.

2 While realms of joy and worlds around
Their hallelujahs high resound,
Let saints below and saints above
Exulting sing redeeming love.

3 As instruments well tun’d and strung,
We’ll praise the Lord with heart and tongue;
While life remains we’ll loud proclaim
High hallelujahs to His name.

4 Beyond the grave, in nobler strains,
When freed from sorrow, sin, and pains,
Eternally the Church will raise
High hallelujahs to His praise.
