1 Praise the Lord! you heav'ns, adore him;
Praise him, angels, in the height;
Sun and moon, rejoice before him;
Praise him, all you stars and light.
Praise the Lord! for he has spoken;
Worlds his mighty voice obeyed;
Laws which never shall be broken
For their guidance he has made.

2 Praise the Lord! for he is glorious;
Never shall his promise fail;
God has made his saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation!
Hosts on high, his pow'r proclaim;
Heav'n and earth, and all creation
Praise and glorify his name.

3 Worship, honor, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer as our gift.
Young and old, your praise expressing,
Our glad songs to you we lift.
All the saints in heav'n adore you,
We would join their glad acclaim;
As your angels serve before you,
So on earth we praise your name.
