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 them praise the Lord’s name, for He spoke and they all 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, maidens, old men, children—let all earth His praise declare.
13Let them ever praise the Lord’s name; His name is exalted high;
For His splendor and His glory are above the earth and sky.
14He has lifted up a horn for His own people all their days;
Is-ra-el, the people near Him—give the Lord wholehearted praise!
