Psalm 8


1. O LORD, our Lord, yours be all adoration.
How glorious is your name in all creation!
You have displayed your majesty on high;
your glory reaches far above the sky.

2. From children’s lips you let your praise be sounded,
and on this praise a fortress you have founded:
our little ones your strength and glory show;
through them you silence the avenging foe.

3. LORD, when my gaze upon the heavens lingers,
on moon and stars, the work of your own fingers,
O what is man that you should think of him,
the son of man that you should care for him?

4. You little lower than divine have made him
and so with glorious honour have arrayed him.
All things you gave to him as his domain,
that over your creation he might reign.

5. You have appointed him as LORD and master
of bird and beast in forest, field, and pasture;
of all the fish and creatures of the sea.
O LORD, how great is your name’s majesty!
