170. Ho anĝeloj, la Sinjoron adoradu en ĉiel'(o)

1. Ho anĝeloj, la Sinjoron adoradu en ĉiel°!
Ĝoje laŭdu lian gloron suno, luno, ĉiu stel'!
Laŭdu lin, ĉar li regadas, de la universo Reĝ°,
Kaj la mondoj obeadas al konstanta lia leĝ'.

2. Laŭdu pri la gloro Dia! Ne pereos lia vort°;
Venkos sanktularo lia; neniiĝos peko, mort'.
Estu lia pov' laŭdata de l' ĉiela anĝelar°;
Lia nomo adorata de la tuta kreitar'.

Notes: The full text has a superscript o (°) at the end of each odd-numbered line, to indicate that one may at the user's discretion either sing the full word (ending in o) or the ending-elided word (which would end in an apostrophe). The former may suit the music better, but the latter provides a fuller rhyme.
