O praise the LORD | from the heavens:

2 Praise him, all ye | angels• of his:
* 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:

6 He hath made them fast for | ever• and ever:
* he hath given them a law | which shall not be broken.

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.
