1 Sing HALLELUJAH: praise the LORD
ev'n from the heav'ns high:
Ye in the heights his praise resound
above the starry sky.
2 O all his angels, gladly join
your voices Him to praise,
And all ye heav'nly host conspire
his glorious name to raise.
3 Praise Him ye shining sun and moon,
that rule the day and night:
Praise Him in all your various orbs,
ye glittering stars of light.
4 Praise Him ye heav'ns of heav'ns, which all
the rest in height exceed;
And all ye wat'ry clouds above
the airy heav'ns out-spread.
5 O let them all conspire to praise
JEHOVAH's glorious name:
For He commanded, and at once
they into being came.
6 He hath establish'd each of them
for ever in its place:
And He has made a firm decree,
which none shall ever pass.
7 O praise JEHOVAH from the earth,
ye dragons, deeps and seas;
8 Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind;
fulfilling his decrees.
9 All mountains, hills, and fruitful trees;
and all ye cedars high:
10 Wild beasts, all cattle, creeping things
and all ye fowls that fly.
11 Kings and all people on the earth,
princes, earth's judges all;
12 Young men and maidens, ev'ry where,
old men and children small.
13 Let all the LORD's name praise, because
his name alone, on high
Exalted is; his glory shines
above the earth and sky.
14 His people's HORN, the praise of all
his saints, exalt wilt He;
Ev'n Isr'el's SEED to Him most near,
sing HALLELUJAH, ye.
