Praise the Lord from up in Heaven,
Praise Him and the heavenly host;
Praise Him for the mercies given,
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
Praise Him for the moon and the sun,
Praise Him for all the shining stars;
Praise Him for all that He has done,
And for cleaning all our scars.
Let everyone praise the Lord,
He commanded and created;
Show that He is loved and adored,
That He is appreciated.
He established all forever,
For through Him making a decree;
Not to pass away or sever,
Rather bestowed for you and me.
Praise God for creatures of the deep,
All the fish swimming in the sea;
Praise God letting us fall asleep,
Refreshed with a new day to leap.
Stormy wind fulfilling His Word,
As rain and snow cover the land;
Fire and hail damage incurred,
As wind blowing the desert sand.
The mountains and all of the hills,
All of the cedars and fruit trees;
Relaxing after all the thrills,
In the summer, feeling the breeze.
The beasts and all of the livestock,
All the birds flying in the air;
In their language hearing them talk,
With all of the love that they share.
Let all praise the name of the Lord,
Exalting of His name alone;
At peace being in one accord,
Doing as to He would condone.
Both men and women, young and old,
Kings and all rulers of the earth;
Praise Him as His plan does unfold,
Bringing to this place a new birth.
Raise up a horn for His people,
While praising all of the saints;
Calling each one to the temple,
Without having any restraints.
