Praise ye the Lord. Praise God in the sanctuary: praise the Lord in the firmament of God’s power.
Praise the Lord for the mighty acts: praise the Lord according to God’s excellent greatness.
Praise the Lord with the sound of the trumpet: praise the Lord with the psaltery and harp.
Praise the Lord with the timbrel and dance: praise the Lord with stringed instruments and organs.
Praise the Lord upon the loud cymbals: praise the Lord upon the high sounding cymbals.
Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord. Praise ye the Lord. —Psalm 150
Praise the rain, the seagull dive
The curl of plant, the raven talk —
Praise the hurt, the house slack
The stand of trees, the dignity —
Praise the dark, the moon cradle
The sky fall, the bear sleep —
Praise the mist, the warrior name
The earth eclipse, the fired leap —
Praise the backwards, upward sky
The baby cry, the spirit food —
Praise canoe, the fish rush
The hole for frog, the upside-down —
Praise the day, the cloud cup
The mind flat, forget it all —
Praise crazy. Praise sad.
Praise the path on which we’re led.
Praise the roads on earth and water.
Praise the eater and the eaten.
Praise beginnings; praise the end.
Praise the song and praise the singer.
Praise the rain; it brings more rain.
Praise the rain; it brings more rain. —Joy Harjo, Praise for the Rain
May our very breath be praise, O Lord of all creation. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
