Original text and translations
O worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness,
let the whole earth stand in awe of Him.
For the Lord is great, and ready to be praised,
He is more to be feared than all gods.
The Lord is nigh to them that are of a contrite heart,
and will save such as be of an humble spirit.
The Lord is gracious and full of compassion,
slow to anger, and of great mercy
The Lord is nigh to them.
Now therefore, our God, we thank Thee, and praise Thy glorious Name.
Praise the Lord! ye heavens, adore Him,
Praise Him, Angels, in the height,
Sun and moon, rejoice before Him,
Praise Him, all ye stars and light.
Praise the God of our salvation
Hosts on high, His power proclaim,
Heaven and earth, and all creation,
Laud and magnify His Name.
