1650 Scottish Psalter
Nikolaus Herman, c. 1500-1561
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 nätions, 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.
