Let all things praise the Lord: men and angels, the heavenly bodies, the elements and the earth, and all things thereon.

  1 Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.

  2 Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.

  3 Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

  4 Praise him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.

  5 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for he commanded, and they were created.

  6 He hath also stablished them for ever and ever: he hath made a decree which shall not pass.

  7 Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:

  8 Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour; stormy wind fulfilling his word:

  9 Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:

  10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:

  11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:

  12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:

  13 Let them praise the name of the Lord: for his name alone is excellent; his glory is above the earth and heaven.

  14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints; even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the Lord.
