Heralds of creation cry Praise the Lord




Heralds of creation cry,
óPraise the Lord, the Lord most high;
Heaven and earth, obey the call,
Praise the Lord, the Lord of all.


For He spake, and forth from night
Sprang the universe to light;
He commanded,óNature heard,
And stood fast upon his word.


Praise Him, all ye hosts above,
Spirits perfected in love;
Sun and moon, your voices raise,
Sing, ye stars, your Makerís praise.


Earth, from all thy depths below,
Oceanís hallelujahs flow;
Lightning, vapour, wind, and storm,
hail and snow, his will perform.


Vales and mountains, burst in song;
Rovers. roll with praise along;
Clap your hands, ye trees, and hail
God, who comes in every gale.


Birds, on wings of rapture, soar,
Warble at his temple-door;
Joyful sounds, from herds and flocks,
Echo back, ye caves and rocks.


Kings, your Sovereign serve with awe;
Judges, own his righteous law;
Princes, worship Him with fear;
Now the knee, all people here.


Let this truth by babes be told,
And his wonders, by the old;
Youths and maidens, in your prime,
Learn the lays of heaven betime.


High above all height his throne,
Excellent his name alone;
Him let all his works confess;
Him let every being bless.
