Psalm 148 - 2nd Version
ST. JOHN | Same-Tune Hymns | Bible Passage
William H. Havergal, 1793-1870
1 FROM heaven the Lord confess,
In heights 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 Jehovah gave you birth,
Him therefore glorious make;
To being ye came forth,
When he the word but spake.
6 And from that place
Where fixed you be
By his decree,
You cannot pass.
7 Praise him from earth below,
Ye dragons, and ye deeps:
8 Fire, hail, clouds, wind, and snow
Which 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 Kings, tribes of every tongue,
All princes mean or high,
12 Both men and virgins young;
Even young and old,
13 Exalt his name;
For much his fame
Should be extolled.
Jehovah's name be praised
Above both earth and sky;
14 For he his saints hath raised,
And set their horn on high:
Even those that be
Of Israel's race,
Near to his grace
The Lord praise ye.
