* praise | him, all his host.

3 Praise him, | sun and moon:

* praise him, | all ye stars and light.

4 Praise him, | all ye heavens,

* and ye waters that | are above the heavens.

5 Let them praise the Name | of the LORD:

8 Fire and hail, | snow and vapours,

* wind and | storm, ful•filling• his word;

9 Mountains and | all hills;

* fruitful | trees and all cedars;

10 Beasts and | all cattle;

* creeping | things and flying fowls;

11 Kings of the earth, and | all peoples;

* princes, and all | judges of the world;

12 Young men and maidens, old men and children, praise the Name | of the LORD:

* for his Name only is excellent, and his praise a- | -bove heaven and earth.

13 He shall exalt the horn of his people: all his | saints shall praise him;

* even the children of Israel, even the | people• that serveth him.

Glory be to the Father, and | to the Son,

* and | to the Holy Ghost,

As it was in the beginning, is now, and | ever shall be,

* world without | end.  Amen.
