Psalmus 148
Language: Latin 
1  [Alleluja.] Laudate Dominum de cælis; laudate eum in excelsis.
2  Laudate eum, omnes angeli ejus; laudate eum, omnes virtutes ejus.
3  Laudate eum, sol et luna; laudate eum, omnes stellæ et lumen.
4  Laudate eum, cæli cælorum; et aquæ omnes quæ super cælos sunt,
5  laudent nomen Domini. Quia ipse dixit, et facta sunt;
   ipse mandavit, et creata sunt.
6  Statuit ea in æternum, et in sæculum sæculi;
   præceptum posuit, et non præteribit.
7  Laudate Dominum de terra, dracones et omnes abyssi;
8  ignis, grando, nix, glacies, spiritus procellarum,
   quæ faciunt verbum ejus;
9  montes, et omnes colles; ligna fructifera, et omnes cedri;
10 bestiæ, et universa pecora; serpentes, et volucres pennatæ;
11 reges terræ et omnes populi; principes et omnes judices terræ;
12 juvenes et virgines; senes cum junioribus, laudent nomen Domini:
13 quia exaltatum est nomen ejus solius.
14 Confessio ejus super cælum et terram; et exaltavit cornu populi sui.
   Hymnus omnibus sanctis ejus; filiis Israël, populo appropinquanti sibi.
   Alleluja.

Psalm 148
Language: English  after the Latin 
1  Praise ye the LORD. Praise ye the LORD from the heavens: praise him in the heights.
2  Praise ye him, all his angels: praise ye him, all his hosts.
3  Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.
4  Praise [ye]1 him, ye heavens of heavens, and ye waters that be above the heavens.
5  Let them praise the name of the LORD:
   for he commanded, and they were created.
6  He hath also stablished them for ever and ever:
   he hath made a decree which shall not pass.
7  Praise [ye]1 the LORD from the earth, ye dragons, and all deeps:
8  Fire, and hail; snow, and vapour;
   stormy wind fulfilling his word:
9  Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars:
10 Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and flying fowl:
11 Kings of the earth, and all people; princes, and all judges of the earth:
12 Both young men, and maidens; old men, and children:
13 Let them praise the name of the LORD: for his name alone is excellent;
   his glory is above the earth and heaven.
14 He also exalteth the horn of his people, the praise of all his saints;
   even of the children of Israel, a people near unto him. Praise ye the LORD.
