Praise God from whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creatures here below,
Praise Him above ye heav'nly host,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
[Amen.]

1. From all that dwell below the skies,
Let the Creator's praise arise;
Let the Redeemer's name be sung
Thro' ev'ry land, by ev'ry tongue.

2. Eternal are Thy mercies, Lord;
Eternal truth attends Thy word;
Thy praise shall sound from shore to shore,
Till suns shall rise and set no more.

讚美一神萬有之源,
天下生靈都當頌言,
天上萬軍也讚主名,
同心讚美父子聖靈,
阿們。
