Praise Him now you highest heavens
E/G♯  F♯m7
All you waters above the skies
Chorus:
   E                     F♯m7
If we did not praise the rocks would cry out
   E/G♯                  A2

   Bsus4               A2
If no song was sung in all of the earth

The rocks would cry out Your praise
Verse 2:
Praise Him on the earth now
Creatures in the seas below
Lightning, hail and snow and clouds
Stormy winds that do His will
All you mountains, all you hills
All you creatures great and small
Kings and rulers of the earth
Come and praise Him young and old

Praise the Lord in the heavens
Praise Him in the heights above
Praise Him all His angels
Praise Him all His heavenly host
Praise Him sun and moon up high
Praise Him all you stars that shine
Praise Him now you highest heavens
All you waters above the skies

If we did not praise
The rocks would cry out
If we did not praise
The rocks would cry out
If no song was sung in all of the earth
The rocks would cry out Your praise


Praise Him on the earth now
Creatures in the seas below
Lightning, hail and snow and clouds
Stormy winds that do His will
All you mountains, all you hills
All you creatures great and small
Kings and rulers of the earth
Come and praise Him young and old
