Praise the Lord from the heavens; ♦︎
praise him in the heights.
2 Praise him, all you his angels; ♦︎
praise him, all his host.
3 Praise him, sun and moon; ♦︎
praise him, all you stars of light.
4 Praise him, heaven of heavens, ♦︎
and you waters above the heavens.
5 Let them praise the name of the Lord, ♦︎
for he commanded and they were created.
6 He made them fast for ever and ever; ♦︎
he gave them a law which shall not pass away.
7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ♦︎
you sea monsters and all deeps;
8 Fire and hail, snow and mist, ♦︎
tempestuous wind, fulfilling his word;
9 Mountains and all hills, ♦︎
fruit trees and all cedars;
10 Wild beasts and all cattle, ♦︎
creeping things and birds on the wing;
11 Kings of the earth and all peoples, ♦︎
princes and all rulers of the world;
12 Young men and women,
old and young together; ♦︎
let them praise the name of the Lord.
13 For his name only is exalted, ♦︎
his splendour above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up the horn of his people
and praise for all his faithful servants, ♦︎
the children of Israel, a people who are near him.
O sing to the Lord a new song; ♦︎
sing his praise in the congregation of the faithful.
2 Let Israel rejoice in their maker; ♦︎
let the children of Zion be joyful in their king.
3 Let them praise his name in the dance; ♦︎
let them sing praise to him with timbrel and lyre.
4 For the Lord has pleasure in his people ♦︎
and adorns the poor with salvation.
5 Let the faithful be joyful in glory; ♦︎
let them rejoice in their ranks,
6 With the praises of God in their mouths ♦︎
and a two-edged sword in their hands;
7 To execute vengeance on the nations ♦︎
and punishment on the peoples;
8 To bind their kings in chains ♦︎
and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute on them the judgement decreed: ♦︎
such honour have all his faithful servants.
O praise God in his holiness; ♦︎
praise him in the firmament of his power.
2 Praise him for his mighty acts; ♦︎
praise him according to his excellent greatness.
3 Praise him with the blast of the trumpet; ♦︎
praise him upon the harp and lyre.
4 Praise him with timbrel and dances; ♦︎
praise him upon the strings and pipe.
5 Praise him with ringing cymbals; ♦︎
praise him upon the clashing cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath ♦︎
praise the Lord.
