Praise the Lord. O praise the Lord of heaven; *
praise him in the heights.
Praise him, all you angels of his; *
praise him, all his host.
Praise him, sun and moon; *
praise him, all you stars of light.
Praise him, all you highest heavens, *
and you waters that are above the heavens.
Let them praise the Name of the Lord, *
for he spoke the word, and they were made; he commanded, and they were created.
He has made them stand fast for ever and ever; *
he has given them a law which shall not be broken.
Praise the Lord upon earth, *
you sea monsters and all deeps;
Fire and hail, snow and fog, *
wind and storm, fulfilling his word;
Mountains and all hills, *
fruitful trees and all cedars;
Beasts and all cattle, *
creeping things and birds of the air;
Kings of the earth and all peoples, *
princes and all rulers of the world;
Young men and maidens, *
old men and children together.
Let them 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 faithful shall praise him, *
the children of Israel, the people who are near him. Praise the Lord.
