Latinised Hymns

Praise the Lord! ye heavens adore him

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.

Anon. (Ps.148)

Laudet exaltata Deum
angelorum curia,
neve taceatis eum,
luna sol et sidera.
Celebrate quem locutum
audiere saecula,
quo perenne ius statutum
diriget vestigia.

Deo fida pollicenti
laus et esto gloria,
sanctos suos promoventi
cohibenti Tartara.
Deus alte, qui servavit,
praedicetur validus,
et laudetur, quod creavit,
firmamento Dominus.
