1. Praise with the trumpet, praise with the harp,
Praise with the timbrel, the dance and the lyre;
Let everything that has breath give praise to God.
Refrain: I want to praise your name.
I want to sing your goodness.
Glory, O God; Glory.
2. Mountains and valleys, rivers and seas,
Stars in the heavens and fish in the deep;
Let all creation give praise to God on high.
3. Mothers and fathers, daughters and sons,
All of God's people, the old and the young;
Let all who hunger to do God's will give praise.
