Psalm 148-Praises of the Cosmos

The cosmos praises God!
The sun, the moon, the stars and galaxies
The infinite regions of space—
All being made by the Word which is creating them over eons of time.
The earth praises God!
The deep mystery of the seas, the tall mountains,
forests, grasslands, savannahs, croplands and deserts.
The beasts, insects, reptiles, birds,
all expressing exuberance of the force of life.
The people praise God!
The wise, the rulers, the lowly, the children
The ones who see the splendor of the cosmos and the single beauty of every star
The people praise God!
the star in the center of every heart
creating them in love.
