Praise the Lord, ye heavens adore Him (Austria)


Praise the Lord, ye heavens, adore Him!
Praise Him, angels in the height;
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him,
Praise Him, all ye stars of light.
Praise the Lord, for He hath spoken;
Worlds His mighty voice obeyed:
Laws, which never shall be broken,
For their guidance He hath made.

Praise the Lord, for He is glorious:
Never shall His promise fail.
God hath made His saints victorious;
Sin and death shall not prevail.
Praise the God of our salvation,
Hosts on high, His power proclaim;
Heaven and earth and all creation,
Laud and magnify His Name.

Worship, honour, glory, blessing,
Lord, we offer to Thy name.
Young and old, Thy praise expressing,
Join their Saviour to proclaim:
As the saints in heaven adore Thee,
We would bow before Thy throne,
As Thine angels serve before Thee,
So on earth Thy will be done.
