148. All things praise you, Lord most high

1 All things praise you, Lord most high,
heaven and earth, and sea and sky;
all were for your glory made,
that your greatness thus displayed
should all worship bring to you:
so we praise you, Lord, anew.

2 All things praise you - night to night
sings in silent hymns of light:
all things praise you - day to day
hymns your power in burning ray;
time and space are praising you:
so we praise you, Lord, anew.

3 All things praise you: heaven's high shrine
rings with melody divine;
lowly bending at your feet,
seraph and archangel meet,
know their highest bliss to be
ever praising: so may we.

4 All things praise you, glorious Lord,
great Creator, powerful Word,
omnipresent Spirit, now
at your throne we humbly bow,
lift our hearts in praise to you:
so we praise you, Lord, anew.
