Psalm 148


R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. 

Praise the LORD from the heavens;
praise him in the heights.
Praise him, all you his angels;
praise him, all you his hosts. 

R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. 

Let the kings of the earth and all peoples,
the princes and all the judges of the earth,
Young men too, and maidens,
old men and boys. 

R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. 

Praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted;
His majesty is above earth and heaven. 

R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. 

He has lifted up the horn of his people;
Be this his praise from all his faithful ones,
from the children of Israel, the people close to him.
Alleluia. 

R. Heaven and earth are full of your glory.
