Psalm Cl.

Praise ye the Lord, your Songs address
To praise His Holynes:
O praise Him in His pow'rs extent,
Who rules the firmament.
Praise Him for all His acts of might,
Our wonder which invite:
In praises due His greatness tell,
Which all things doth excell.
Praise Him with Trumpets lofty sound,
With Cornets shake the ground:
His praise the Psaltery inspire,
With the melodious Lyre.
Praise him with Timbrells, and advance
His honour in the Dance.
Praise Him with Organs, Violls, Flutes,
And the well-stringed Lutes.
With Cymbals loud Him magnify,
Praise Him on Cymbals high:
Let every creature, that hath breath,
His Maker praise till death.

Any Version, it may be The King James Version or the Henry King´s verse....my grandest congratulations for this serious and sincerest praise and hymns, that is chosen by Poem Hunter to be The Classic Poem Of The Day. Hurray! A myriad of 10´s for the vote! May you R.I.P. with this magnificent Prayer.
Part Four- -I don't know what to think of this. I can see using a line or two in a poem but
PART THREE- -Seems very very like the King James version. Just amplified a bit. I don't kbo
PART TWO- - 4 Praise him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs. 5 Praise him upon the loud cymbals: praise him upon the high sounding cymbals. 6 Let every thing that hath breath praise the LORD. Praise ye the LORD.
PART ONE__KING JAMES VERSION: 1.Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: praise him in the firmament of his power. 2 Praise him for his mighty acts: praise him according to his excellent greatness. 3 Praise him with the sound of the trumpet: praise him with the psaltery and harp.
