1 Praise God, you angel hosts above,
who stand in heaven's light;
and praise the Lord, you saints below,
who in God's praise delight.
2 By all his creatures let his name
be honored and adored;
let all that breathe in praise unite
to glorify the Lord.
st. 1 = Ps. 150:1
st. 2 = Ps. 150:6
This summary of Psalm 150 was adapted from a text first found in the 1912 Psalter. Like the psalm, "Praise God" invites the angels above, saints below, and all creation to glorify the Lord.
As a doxology–Psalm 150 is the great doxology of the entire book of Psalms.
