Description
A festive, splashy setting of Psalm 150, as paraphrased by Charles Wesley. Neither the choral nor organ parts are difficult to manage, although it will help if your organ has a big solo trumpet stop.

Text
Praise the Lord who reigns above
and keeps his court below;
praise the holy God of love
and all his greatness show;
praise him for his noble deeds,
praise for his matchless power;
him from whom all good proceeds
let earth and heaven adore.

Celebrate the eternal God
with harp and psaltery,
timbre's soft and cymbals loud
in this high praise agree;
praise with every tuneful string;
all the reach of heavenly art,
all the powers of music bring,
the music of the heart.

God, in whom they move and live,
let every creature sing,
glory to their Maker give,
and homage to their King.
Hallowed by thy name beneath,
as in heaven on earth adored;
praise the Lord in every breath,
let all things praise the Lord.

--Charles Wesley, 1743, based on Psalm 150
