Come Praise The Lord!
Praise our God!
His deeds are wonderful, too marvelous to describe.
Praise him with trumpets and all kind of harps.
Praise him with tambourines and dancing,
With stringed instruments and woodwinds.
Praise him with cymbals, with clashing cymbals.
Praise him all ye creatures.
Sun and moon, and all ye bright stars, come and offer praise.
Sea monsters and the deep sea,
fire and hail, snow and frost,
and every stormy wind, come praise the Lord!
All mountains and hills,
fruit trees and cedars, every wild and tame animal,
all reptiles and birds, come praise the Lord!
Every king and every ruler, all nations on earth,
every man and every woman, young and old, come praise the lord!
He covers the ground with snow like a blanket of wool,
And he scatters frost like ashes on the ground.
He sends down hailstones like chip of rocks. Who can stand the cold?
At his command the ice melts,
The wind blows, and streams begin to flow.
He taught hawks to fly south for the winter.
He made the ostrich foolish and without common sense, but gave her speed.
He gave horses their strength, and the flowing hair around their necks.
He trained the eagles to build their nests on rocky cliffs,
Where they can look down to spot their next meal.
He counts the clouds,
And pours out their water on dry lumpy soil.
Let all things praise the name of the Lord,
Because they were created at his command.
