Established in the high­est hea­vens
The Lord has set His throne,
And ov­er all His king­dom rules,
For He is God alone.

Ye an­gels that ex­cel in strength,
Bless ye the Lord, your God;
Ordained to hear and do His will,
Proclaim His praise abroad.

Bless ye the Lord, all ye His hosts
That serve the Lord, your king,
And wait His plea­sure to per­form;
To Him your prais­es bring.

Bless ye the Lord, all ye His works
In His do­min­ion broad,
And, ne­ver ceas­ing, O my soul,
Bless thou the Lord, thy God.
