1Praise the Lord.


Praise the Lord from the heavens;

praise him in the heights above.

2Praise him, all his angels;

praise him, all his heavenly hosts.

3Praise him, sun and moon;

praise him, all you shining stars.

4Praise him, you highest heavens

and you waters above the skies.


5Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for at his command they were created,

6and he established them for ever and ever—

he issued a decree that will never pass away.


7Praise the Lord from the earth,

you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,

8lightning and hail, snow and clouds,

stormy winds that do his bidding,

9you mountains and all hills,

fruit trees and all cedars,

10wild animals and all cattle,

small creatures and flying birds,

11kings of the earth and all nations,

you princes and all rulers on earth,

12young men and women,

old men and children.


13Let them praise the name of the Lord,

for his name alone is exalted;

his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.

14And he has raised up for his people a horn,

the praise of all his faithful servants,

of Israel, the people close to his heart.


Praise the Lord.
