Praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord from the heavens;
praise God in the heights!

Praise God, sun and moon;
praise God, all you shining stars!
Praise God, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!

Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for God commanded and they were created.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
you sea dragons and all creatures of the deep,
fire and hail, snow and frost,
stormy wind fulfilling God’s command!

Mountains and all hills,
fruit trees and all cedars!
Wild animals and all cattle,
creeping things and flying birds!

Rulers of the earth and all peoples!
Young men and women alike,
old and young together!

 Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for God’s name alone is exalted;
God’s glory is above earth and heaven.
