Two-part (equal) choir and organ (or piano). A new musical setting for the traditional hymn text, with a new middle stanza by the composer.
Praise the Lord! ye heavens adore him;
praise him angels in the height;
sun and moon, rejoice before him;
praise him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord! for he hath spoken;
worlds his mighty voice obeyed;
laws which never shall be broken
for their guidance he hath made.
Praise the Lord in quiet gladness,
handsome youth and wizened aged,
In his springs of living knowledge
Let your spirits be assuaged
PRaise the Lord who was and will be
Praise our God the great I AM,
Unmade maker of creation
That who for us was made man.
Praise the Lord! for he is glorious;
never shall his promise fail;
God hath made his saints victorious;
sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation!
Hosts on high, his power proclaim;
heaven and earth, and all creation,
laud and magnify his Name.
