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.
