Praise the Lord, sing hallelujah, 
from the heavens praise his name! 
Praise the Lord, our great creator; 
all his angels, praise proclaim. 
All his hosts, together praise him, 
sun and moon and stars on high. 
Praise the Lord, you heavens of heavens, 
and you floods above the sky. 

                Praise the Lord, sing hallelujah 
                for his name alone is high, 
                and his glory is exalted, 
                and his glory is exalted, 
                and his glory is exalted, 
                far above the earth and sky. 

Let them praise the Lord creator; 
they were made at his command. 
God established them forever, 
his decree shall ever stand. 
From the earth O praise your maker, 
raging seas, you creatures all, 
fire and hail and snow and vapors,
stormy winds that hear his call.            .....refrain

All you fruitful trees and cedars, 
every hill and mountain high, 
creeping things and beasts and cattle, 
birds that in the heavens fly, 
kings of earth and all you people, 
rulers great, earth's judges all; 
praise his name, young men and women, 
aged ones, and children small.            .....refrain
