O praise the Lord of heaven *
praise him in the height.
Praise him, all ye angels of his *
praise him, all his host.
Praise him, sun and moon *
praise him, all ye stars and light.
Praise him, all ye heavens *
and ye waters that are above the heavens.
Let them praise the Name of the Lord *
for he spake the word, and they were made; he commanded, and they were created.
He hath made them fast for ever and ever *
he hath given them a law which shall not be broken.
Praise the Lord upon earth *
ye dragons, and all deeps;
Fire and hail, snow and vapours *
wind and storm, fulfilling his word;
Mountains and all hills *
fruitful trees and all cedars;
Beasts and all cattle *
worms and feathered fowls;
Kings of the earth and all people *
princes and all judges of the world;
Young men and maidens, old men and children, praise the Name of the Lord *
for his Name only is excellent, and his praise above heaven and earth.
He shall exalt the horn of his people; all his saints shall praise him *
even the children of Israel, even the people that serveth him.
