Psalm 148

  Hallelujah! Praise God from heaven, 
      praise him from the mountaintops; 
   Praise him, all you his angels, 
      praise him, all you his warriors, 
   Praise him, sun and moon, 
      praise him, you morning stars; 
   Praise him, high heaven, 
      praise him, heavenly rain clouds; 
   Praise, oh let them praise the name of God— 
      he spoke the word, and there they were! 

 6 He set them in place 
      from all time to eternity; 
   He gave his orders, 
      and that's it! 

 7-12 Praise God from earth, 
      you sea dragons, you fathomless ocean deeps; 
   Fire and hail, snow and ice, 
      hurricanes obeying his orders; 
   Mountains and all hills, 
      apple orchards and cedar forests; 
   Wild beasts and herds of cattle, 
      snakes, and birds in flight; 
   Earth's kings and all races, 
      leaders and important people, 
   Robust men and women in their prime, 
      and yes, graybeards and little children. 

 13-14 Let them praise the name of God— 
      it's the only Name worth praising. 
   His radiance exceeds anything in earth and sky; 
      he's built a monument—his very own people!

   Praise from all who love God
      Israel's children, intimate friends of God
