Psalm 148 

 


First Version (C.M.)

 

[Recommended tunes: Stockton, Milton ]

8,6,8,6


                                           

1Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord,

in heights praise to him be.

2All ye his angels, praise ye him;

his hosts all, praise him ye.

3O praise ye him, both sun and moon,

praise him, all stars of light.

4Ye heav'ns of heav'ns him praise, and floods

above the heavens' height.

 

5Let all the creatures praise the name

of our almighty Lord:

For he commanded, and they were

created by his word.

6He also, for all times to come,

hath them establish'd sure;

He hath appointed them a law,

which ever shall endure.

 

7Praise ye Jehovah from the earth,

dragons, and ev'ry deep:

8Fire, hail, snow, vapour, stormy wind,

his word that fully keep.

9All hills and mountains, fruitful trees,

and all ye cedars high:

10Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things,

and all ye birds that fly.

 

11Kings of the earth, all nations,

princes, earth's judges all:

12Both young men, yea, and maidens too,

old men, and children small.

13Let them God's name praise; for his name

alone is excellent:

His glory reacheth far above

the earth and firmament.

 

14His people's horn, the praise of all

his saints, exalteth he;

Ev'n Isr'el's seed, a people near

to him. The Lord praise ye.

                                                                                           

             


    Second Version (6.6.6.6.8.8.)

 

[Recommended tunes: St John , Lawes (Psalm 47)]

6,6,6,6,8,8


 

1The Lord of heav'n confess,

On high his glory raise.

2Him let all angels bless,

Him all his armies praise.

3Him glorify

Sun, moon, and stars;

4Ye higher spheres,

And cloudy sky.

 

5From God your beings are,

Him therefore famous make;

You all created were,

When he the word but spake.

6And from that place,

Where fix'd you be

By his decree,

You cannot pass.

 

7Praise God from earth below,

Ye dragons, and ye deeps:

8Fire, hail, clouds, wind, and snow.

Whom in command he keeps.

9Praise ye his name,

Hills great and small,

Trees low and tall;

10Beasts wild and tame;

 

All things that creep or fly.

11Ye kings, ye vulgar throng,

All princes mean or high;

12Both men and virgins young,

Ev'n young and old,

13Exalt his name;

For much his fame

Should be extoll'd.

 

O let God's name be prais'd

Above both earth and sky;

14For he his saints hath rais'd,

And set their horn on high;

Ev'n those that be

Of Isr'el's race,

Near to his grace.

The Lord praise ye.
