Praise the Lord from the heavens;
Praise Him on high.
Praise Him, all His angels,
Praise Him, all His hosts.
Praise Him, sun and moon,
Praise Him, all bright stars.
Praise Him, highest heavens,
and you waters that are above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for it was He who commanded that they be created.
He made them endure forever,
establishing an order that shall never change.
Happy is the person who has not followed
the counsel of the wicked,
or taken the path of sinners,
or joined the company of the insolent;
rather, the teaching of the Lord is his delight,
and he studies that teaching day and night.
He is like a tree planted beside streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season,
whose foliage never fades,
and whatever it produces thrives.
