Praise for God’s Universal Glory
Praise the Lord from the heavens,
praise him in the heights!
2 Praise him, all his angels,
praise him, all his host!
praise him, all you shining stars!
4 Praise him, you highest heavens,
and you waters above the heavens!
For he commanded and they were created.
6 And he established them for ever and ever;
he fixed their bounds which cannot be passed.[a]
you sea monsters and all deeps,
8 fire and hail, snow and frost,
stormy wind fulfilling his command!
fruit trees and all cedars!
10 Beasts and all cattle,
creeping things and flying birds!
princes and all rulers of the earth!
12 Young men and maidens together,
old men and children!
for his name alone is exalted;
his glory is above earth and heaven.
14 He has raised up a horn for his people,
praise for all his saints,
for the people of Israel who are near to him.
Praise the Lord!
- Psalm 148:6 Or he set a law which cannot pass away
