In the heav’ns the Lord Al­migh­ty
Fixed His ev­er­last­ing throne;
Over all is His do­min­ion,
He is God and He alone.

Bless the Lord, ye migh­ty an­gels,
Ye that heark­en to His voice,
All His gra­cious word ful­fill­ing,
Ever bless Him and re­joice.

Bless the Lord, all ye His ser­vants,
Ministers of God Most High;
Ye His hosts, that do His plea­sure,
God your mak­er glo­ri­fy.

Bless the Lord, all things cre­at­ed;
Be His ho­ly name ad­ored
All through­out His wide do­min­ion;
O my soul, bless thou the Lord.
