Alleluia. Of Haggai and Zechariah.
Praise ye the Lord from the heavens; praise Him in the highest.
Praise ye Him, all His angels; praise ye him, all His hosts.
Praise ye Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all ye stars and light.
Praise Him, ye heaven of heavens, and thou water that art above the heavens.
Let them praise the name of the Lord; for He spake, and they were made; He commanded, and they were created.
He hath established them for ever and ever; He hath made a decree, and it shall not pass away.
Praise the Lord from the earth, ye dragons and all deeps.
Fire, and hail, snow, and ice, stormy wind, fulfilling His word; Mountains, and all hills; fruitful trees, and all cedars; Beasts, and all cattle; creeping things, and winged fowl; Kings of the earth, and all peoples; princes, and all judges of the earth; Both young men and maidens; old men, and children; Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name alone is exalted.
His praise is above the earth and heaven, and He shall exalt the horn of His people, A hymn is meet for all His saints; even for the sons of Israel, for the people that draw near unto Him.
