The Whole Creation Invoked to Praise the LORD.
1 Praise F1546 the F1547 LORD!
Praise the LORD from R4611 the heavens;
Praise Him in R4612 the heights!
2 Praise Him, all R4613 His angels;
Praise Him, all R4614 His hosts!
3 Praise Him, sun and moon;
Praise Him, all stars of light!
4 Praise Him, highest R4615 F1548 heavens,
And the waters R4616 that are above the heavens!
5 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For He R4617 commanded and they were created.
6 He has also established R4618 them forever and ever;
He has made a decree R4619 which will not pass away.
7 Praise the LORD from the earth,
Sea R4620 monsters and all deeps; R4621
8 Fire R4622 and hail, snow R4623 and clouds; R4624
Stormy R4625 wind, fulfilling R4626 His word;
9 Mountains R4627 and all hills;
Fruit trees R4628 and all cedars;
10 Beasts R4629 and all cattle;
Creeping R4630 things and winged fowl;
11 Kings R4631 of the earth and all peoples;
Princes and all judges of the earth;
12 Both young men and virgins;
Old men and children.
13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
For His name R4632 alone is exalted;
His glory R4633 is above earth and heaven.
14 And He has lifted R4634 up a horn for His people,
Praise R4635 for all His godly ones;
Even for the sons of Israel, a people near R4636 to Him.
Praise F1549 the F1550 LORD!
