Give glory to God, all you heavenly creatures;
all glory and power belong to the LORD!
So drop to your knees and respect what is holy,
be quiet and listen: the voice of the LORD!
The voice of the LORD rolls out over the waters;
it thunders and echoes his glory abroad.
The voice of the LORD is majestic and mighty;
its power resounds, and his creatures are awed.
The voice of the LORD now is breaking the cedars;
he shatters the trees while Mount Lebanon quakes.
God speaks: all the hills jump like antelopes startled--
the voice of the LORD makes us creatures to shake.
The voice of the LORD whips out lightning-like flashes.
The voice of the LORD makes the desert to reel.
The voice of the LORD sets the oak t4ree a-whirling.
God strips forests bare by the force of his gale.
The creatures now worship the God of all power;
all creatures respond, ""May God's glory increase.""
The LORD gives his people their strength and all blessing;
the LORD shall encircle his people with peace.
