XXV.
Psalm CXLVIII.
Praise the Lord of Heaven, praise Him in the
height, Praise Him, all ye angels, praise Him, stars and
light; Praise Him, skies, and waters, which above the skies, When His word commanded, 'stablished did arise.
Praise the'Lord, ye fountains of the deeps and seas, Rocks and hills and mountains, cedars and all trees ; Praise Him, clouds and vapours, snow, and hail, and
fire, Stormy wind, fulfilling only His desire.
Praise Him, fowls and cattle, princes and all kings, Praise Him, men and maidens, all created things ; For the Name of God is excellent alone ; Over earth His footstool, over heaven His throne.
T/iomas Bagnall Baker, 1844.
XXVI.
Hark, my soul, how every thing Strives to serve our bounteous King ; Each a double tribute pays, . Sings its part, and then obeys.
Nature's chief and sweetest quire Him with cheerful notes admire ; Chanting every day their lauds, While the grove their song applauds.
