Praise the Lord in his sacred places, praise him in
the firmament of his power.  Praise him for his mighty acts,
praise him according to his excellent greatness. Praise him with
the sound of the trumpet, praise him with the psaltery and the
harp. Praise him with the timbrel and the dance, praise him with
strings and pipes.  Praise him with high-sounding cymbals, praise
him with cymbals of joy. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
