Psalm 148 (1st version)

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 8,6,8,6

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 establish'd 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, vapour, 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.
