All Creation Exhorted to Praise the Lord
1Praise ye the Lord.
Praise ye the Lord from the heavens:
praise him in the heights.
2Praise ye him, all his angels:
praise ye him, all his hosts.
3Praise ye him, sun and moon:
praise him, all ye stars of light.
4Praise him, ye heavens of heavens,
and ye waters that be above the heavens.
5Let them praise the name of the Lord:
for he commanded, and they were created.
6He hath also stablished them for ever and ever:
he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
7Praise the Lord from the earth,
ye dragons, and all deeps:
8fire, and hail; snow, and vapor;
stormy wind fulfilling his word:
9mountains, and all hills;
fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10beasts, and all cattle;
creeping things, and flying fowl:
11kings of the earth, and all people;
princes, and all judges of the earth:
12both young men, and maidens;
old men, and children:
13let them praise the name of the Lord:
for his name alone is excellent;
his glory is above the earth and heaven.
14He also exalteth the horn of his people,
the praise of all his saints;
even of the children of Israel,
a people near unto him.
Praise ye the Lord.
