VERSE 1:
Praise the Lord who reigns above
And keeps His courts below;
Praise the holy God of love
And all His greatness show;
Praise Him for His noble deeds;
Praise Him for His matchless pow'r;
Him from whom all good proceeds
Let earth and Heaven adore.

VERSE 2:
Celebrate the eternal God
With harp and psaltery,
Timbrels soft and cymbals loud
In their high praise agree;
Praise Him every tuneful string;
All the reach of heav'nly art,
All the powers of music bring,
The music of the heart.

VERSE 3:
God, in whom they move and live,
Let every creature sing,
Glory to their maker give,
And homage to their king.
Hallowed be His name beneath,
As in Heav'n on earth adored;
Praise the Lord in every breath,
Let all things praise the Lord!
