Words: The Scottish Psalter
First version (Second version below) 1 Praise God. From heavens praise the Lord, in heights praise to him be. 2 All ye his angels, praise ye him; his hosts all, praise him ye. 3 O praise ye him, both sun and moon, praise him, all stars of light. 4 Ye heav'ns of heav'ns him praise, and floods above the heavens' height. 5 Let all the creatures praise the name of our almighty Lord: For he commanded, and they were created by his word. 6 He also, for all times to come, hath them established sure; He hath appointed them a law, which ever shall endure. 7 Praise ye Jehovah from the earth, dragons, and ev'ry deep: 8 Fire, hail, snow, vapor, stormy wind, his word that fully keep. 9 All hills and mountains, fruitful trees, and all ye cedars high: 10 Beasts, and all cattle, creeping things, and all ye birds that fly. 11 Kings of the earth, all nations, princes, earth's judges all: 12 Both young men, yea, and maidens too, old men, and children small. 13 Let them God's name praise; for his name alone is excellent: His glory reacheth far above the earth and firmament. 14 His 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 (220.127.116.11.8.8.) 1 The Lord of heav'n confess, On high his glory raise. 2 Him let all angels bless, Him all his armies praise. 3 Him glorify Sun, moon, and stars; 4 Ye higher spheres, And cloudy sky. 5 From God your beings are, Him therefore famous make; You all created were, When he the word but spake. 6 And from that place, Where fixed you be By his decree, You cannot pass. 7 Praise God from earth below, Ye dragons, and ye deeps: 8 Fire, hail, clouds, wind, and snow. Whom in command he keeps. 9 Praise ye his name, Hills great and small, Trees low and tall; 10 Beasts wild and tame; All things that creep or fly. 11 Ye kings, ye vulgar throng, All princes mean or high; 12 Both men and virgins young, Ev'n young and old, 13 Exalt his name; For much his fame Should be extolled. O let God's name be praised Above both earth and sky; 14 For he his saints hath raised, And set their horn on high; Ev'n those that be Of Isr'el's race, Near to his grace. The Lord praise ye.
