1. O praise ye the Lord! Praise Him in the height;
Rejoice in His word, Ye angels of light;
Ye heavens, adore Him By whom ye were made,
And worship before Him, In brightness arrayed.
2. O praise ye the Lord! Praise Him upon earth,
In tuneful accord: Ye sons of new birth;
Praise Him who hath brought you His grace from above,
Praise Him who hath taught you To sing of His love.
3. O praise ye the Lord, All things that give sound;
Each jubilant chord, Re-echo around;
Loud organs His glory Forth tell in deep tone,
And sweet harp, the story Of what He hath done.
4. O praise ye the Lord! Thanksgiving and song
To Him be outpoured All ages along:
For love in creation, For heaven restored.
For grace of salvation, O praise ye the Lord!
Words: Henry W. Baker; para. Psalms 148, 150
