Original text and translations

English.png English text

ALL God's creation bless the Lord eternal;
Angels, Archangels, Powers and Dominations,
Waters of heaven, bless the Lord eternal;
Praise him for ever.

Sun, moon and starlight, bless the Lord eternal;
Showers, dew and breezes, summertime and winter,
Fire, heat and burning, bless the Lord eternal;
Praise him for ever.

Cold, dews, and hoar-frost, ice and snow and vapours,
Daylight and darkness, thunderclouds and lightning,
High hills and mountains, bless the Lord eternal;
Praise him for ever.

Earth and its green things, wells and seas and rivers,
Great whales and fishes, birds and beasts and cattle,
All men and women, Israelite and gentile,
Praise him for ever.

Priests in his service, spirits of the righteous,
Holy and humble, bless the Lord eternal;
Three Hebrew children in the fiery furnace,
Praise him for ever.

Praise God the Father, praise the sole-begotten,
Praise God the Spirit, Trinity co-equal,
As since creation, bless the Lord eternal,
Praise him for ever.
C. Upton
