1 Praise him, praise him, praise him, powers and dominations;
praise his name in glorious light, you creatures of the day!
Moon and stars, ring praises through the constellations:
Lord God, whose word shall never pass away!

2 Praise him, praise him, praise him, ocean depths and waters;
elements of earth and heaven, your several praises blend!
Birds and beasts and cattle Adam's sons and daughters,
worship the king whose reign shall never end!

3 Praise him, praise him, praise him, saints of God who fear him;!
to the highest name of all, concerted anthems raise,
all you seed of Israel, holy people near him
whom he exalts and crowns with endless praise!

After Psalm 148, Michael Perry (1942 - 1996)
