Translation by Johann Andreas Kramer

Der 148. Psalm
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Latin 
Preis sei dem Gotte Zebaoth!
Ihr Himmel lobt den Herrn!
Lobt in den Höhen unsern Gott,
wer preiset ihn nicht gern?

Das Volk, das er erwählt, sei
ihm heilig, preis ihn gern!
Es bleibe seinem Bunde treu,
erhebt, erhebt den Herrn!
