1 Praise the Lord! ye heavens, adore him;
praise him, angels in the height;
sun and moon, bow down before him;
praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for he hath spoken;
worlds his mighty voice obeyed:
laws which never shall be broken
for their guidance he hath made.
2 Praise the Lord! for he is glorious;
never shall his promise fail;
God hath made his saints victorious:
sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation;
hosts on high, his power proclaim;
heav'n and earth, and all creation,
laud and magnify his name!
