1Praise the Lord! Praise from the heavens; praise Him in the heights above!
2Praise Him, all his angels, praise Him; all His hosts who know His love.
3Praise Him, sun and moon, and praise Him all you shining stars of light;
4Praise Him, all you highest heavens, and you waters in the height.
5Let all these works praise the Lord’s name; for He spoke – they came to be;
6He set them in place forever; everlasting His decree.
7Praise the Lord from all the earth, all ocean depths and creatures there;
8Lightning, hail, snow, clouds, and winds that do His bidding everywhere.
9Praise Him mountains and all hills, all fruit trees and all cedars, too;
10Creeping things and flying birds, all cattle and wild creatures, too.
11Kings of earth and all you nations, princes, rulers everywhere;
12Young men, old men, maidens, children – let all earth His praise declare.
13Let them ever praise the Lord’s name, for He is exalted high;
He alone is to be praised; His glory is above the sky.
14He has lifted up a horn for His own people all their days;
For the sons of Isr’el, who are near to Him – to Him be praise!
