praise him in the heights!
Praise him, all his angels;
praise him, all his hosts!
praise him, all you shining stars!
and you waters above the heavens!
For he commanded and they were created.
And he established them forever and ever;
he gave a decree, and it shall not pass away.
you great sea creatures and all deeps,
fire and hail, snow and mist,
stormy wind fulfilling his word!
fruit trees and all cedars!
Beasts and all livestock,
creeping things and flying birds!
princes and all rulers of the earth!
Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
for his name alone is exalted;
his majesty is above earth and heaven.
He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his saints,
for the people of Israel who are near to him.
Praise the LORD!
