Praise God! From Heaven Praise Him;
In heights praise to Him be;
All ye His angels praise Him;
His hosts all praise Him ye.
Praise Him both sun and moon; Him
Praise all ye stars of light;
Ye heavens of heavens praise Him,
And floods above your height.

Let all the creatures praise Him;
Him, our almighty Lord;
They were, when He commanded,
Created by His word.
He also for all ages
Hath them established sure,
A law to them appointed
Which ever shall endure.

Kings of the earth, all nations,
Princes and judges all,
Both young men, yea, and maidens,
Old men and children small;
Let them God’s name praise; His name
Alone is excellent;
His glory reacheth over
Earth and the firmament.
