Full Text

1 Praise ye the Lord, from heav'n him praise
Him in the heights O praise.
2 O ye his Angels all him praise.
All ye his hosts him praise.
3 Praise him ye sun and moon, and all
Ye stars of light him praise:
4 Ye heav'ns of heav'ns him praise: above
The heav'ns ye waters rais'd.

5 Let them the Lord's name praise becaue,
He bade, and made were they.
6 Yea, he them fix'd for aye; the law
He made shall not decay.
7 Jehovah praise ye from the earth,
Ye dragons and all deeps.
8 The fire and hail, the snow and mist,
Whirlwind, his word that keeps.

9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees,
Ye cedars all likewise.
10 Beasts and all cattle creeping things,
and ev'ry fowl that flies.
11 Kings of the earth, and people all,
Peers, all earth's judges too.
12 Young men and maidens both, the same
Old men and children, do.

i3 Let these the Lord's name praise, because
His name alone on high
Exalted is, his glory is
Above the earth and sky.
14 Yea, he exalts his peoples horn,
Of all the saints the praise.
Of Isra'ls sons, a folk him near;
Therefore Jehovah praise.
