1Praise the Lord! Ye heavens adore Him,
Praise Him, angels in the height,
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him,
Praise Him, all ye stars of light!
2Praise the Lord, for He hath spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed;
Laws which never can be broken,
For their guidance He hath made.
3Praise the Lord, for He is glorious,
Never shall His promise fail;
God hath made His saints victorious,
Sin and death shall not prevail.
4Praise the God of our salvation,
Hosts on high! His power proclaim;
Heaven and earth, and all creation!
Laud and magnify His name.
