Lyrics

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.
