Psalm 8


      1       O LORD, our Lord,
      how majestic is your name in all the earth!
                  You have set your glory above the heavens.
            2       Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
                  you have established strength because of your foes,
      to still the enemy and the avenger.

            3       When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
      the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
            4       what is man that you are mindful of him,
      and the son of man that you care for him?

            5       Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
      and crowned him with glory and honor.
            6       You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
      you have put all things under his feet,
            7       all sheep and oxen,
      and also the beasts of the field,
            8       the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
      whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

            9       O LORD, our Lord,
      how majestic is your name in all the earth!
