Praise the Lord of heaven, praise him in the height

Praise the Lord of heaven; praise him in the height;
praise him, all ye Angels; praise him, stars and light;
praise him, skies and waters, which above the skies,
when his word commanded, 'stablished did arise.

Praise the Lord, ye fountains of the deeps and seas,
rocks and hills and mountains, cedars and all trees;
praise him, clouds and vapors, snow and hail and fire,
stormy wind fulfilling only his desire.

Praise him, fowls and cattle, princes and all kings;
praise him, men and maidens, all created things;
for the name of God is excellent alone;
on the earth his footstool, over heaven his throne.
