Psalm 148 (2nd version)

From Scottish Metrical Psalms 1650

Meter: 6,6,6,6,8,8

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 fix'd 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 extoll'd.

     O let God's name be prais'd
       Above both earth and sky;
14   For he his saints hath rais'd,
       And set their horn on high;
         Ev'n those that be
           Of Isr'el's race,
           Near to his grace.
         The Lord praise ye.
