Title: Praise the Lord from the heavens
Composer: Philip Le Bas
Lyricist: Psalm 148
Number of voices: 3vv   Voicing: SAB

Description: A joyful, upbeat setting of Psalm 148 to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III, 6th May 2023. Although the time signatures may at first seem daunting, this is quite simple to perform and the piano part is deliberately supportive. I hope singers will find it fun to sing and perhaps a church congregation might be encouraged to join in with the refrains!

Psalm 148

Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise the Lord from the heights!
Praise him all his angels;
Praise him all his host!

Praise him, praise him, sun and moon,
praise him all you shining stars,
praise him highest heavens,
praise the name of the Lord.

Great sea monsters, ocean deeps,
fire and hail at his command,
snow and frost and stormy wind,
praise the name of the Lord.

Praise him, hills and mountains,
cattle and wild animals,
creeping things and flying birds,
praise the name of the Lord.

He commanded, they were made,
fixed their bounds as he decreed,
founded them for ever.
Praise the name of the Lord.

Kings of the earth and princes,
rulers of every nation,
women and men together
praise the name of the Lord.
