1 Praise the Lord who reigns above
and keeps His court below;
praise the holy God of love,
and all His greatness show;
praise Him for His noble deeds,
praise Him for His matchless power;
Him from whom all good proceeds
let earth and heaven adore.
2 Celebrate th’eternal God
with harp and psaltery,
timbrels soft and cymbals loud
in His high praise agree;
praise Him every tuneful string;
all the reach of heavenly art,
all the powers of music bring,
the music of the heart.
3 Him, in whom they move and live,
let every creature sing,
glory to their Maker give,
and homage to their King.
Hallowed be His name beneath,
as in heaven on earth adored;
praise the Lord in every breath,
let all things praise the Lord.
