Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord from heaven, you that live in the heights above.
Praise him, all his angels, all his heavenly armies.
Praise him, sun and moon; praise him, shining stars.
Praise him, highest heavens, and the waters above the sky. a5
Let them all praise the name of the Lord! He commanded, and they were created;
by his command they were fixed in their places forever, and they cannot disobey. b7
Praise the Lord from the earth, sea monsters and all ocean depths;
lightning and hail, snow and clouds, strong winds that obey his command.
Praise him, hills and mountains, fruit trees and forests;
all animals, tame and wild, reptiles and birds.
Praise him, kings and all peoples, princes and all other rulers;
young women and young men, old people and children too.
Let them all praise the name of the Lord! His name is greater than all others; his glory is above earth and heaven.
He made his nation strong, so that all his people praise him - the people of Israel, so dear to him. Praise the Lord!
