Ritual Component

Hallelujah. Praise the Lord from the heavens; praise Him on high.

Praise Him, all His angels; praise Him, all His hosts.

Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all bright stars.

Praise Him, highest heavens, and you waters that are above the heavens.

Let them praise the name of the Lord; for it was He who commanded that they be created.

He made them endure forever, establishing an order that shall never change.

Praise the Lord, O you who are on earth, all sea monsters and ocean depths;

fire and hail, snow and smoke, storm wind that executes His command,

all mountains and hills, all fruit trees and cedars,

all wild and tamed beasts, creeping things and winged birds,

all kings and peoples of the earth, all princes of the earth and its judges,

youths and maidens alike, old and young together.

Let them praise the name of the Lord, for His name, His alone, is sublime;
His splendor covers heaven and earth.

He has exalted the horn of His people, for the glory of all His faithful ones, Israel,
for the people close to Him. Hallelujah.
