Psalm 150

Words: Brady and  Tate, A New Version of the Psalms of David


   1  O Praise the Lord in that blest place,
      from whence his goodness largely flows;
      Praise him in heav'n, where his face
      unveiled in perfect glory shows.
   2  Praise him for all the mighty acts
      which he in our behalf hath done;
      His kindness this return exacts,
      with which our praise should equal run.
   3  Let the shrill trumpet's warlike voice
      make rocks and hills his praise rebound;
      Praise him with harp's melodious noise,
      and gentle psalt'ry's silver sound.
   4  Let virgin troops soft timbrels bring,
      and some with graceful motion dance;
      Let instruments of various strings,
      with organs joined, his praise advance.
   5  Let them, who joyful hymns compose,
      to cymbals set their songs of praise,
      Cymbals of common use, and those
      that loudly sound on solemn days.
   6  Let all that vital breath enjoy,
      the breath he does to them afford
      in just returns of praise employ:
      let ev'ry creature praise the Lord.
