How Majestic Is Your Name

Psalm 8

1 O LORD, our Lord,
How a excellent is Your name in all the earth,
Who have b set Your glory above the heavens!
2 c Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
You have 1 ordained strength,
Because of Your enemies,
That You may silence d the enemy and the avenger.

3 When I e consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
4 f What is man that You are mindful of him,
And the son of man that You g visit 2 him?

5 For You have made him a little lower than 3 the angels,
And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 h You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
i You have put all things under his feet,
7 All sheep and oxen -
Even the beasts of the field,
8 The birds of the air,
And the fish of the sea
That pass through the paths of the seas.

9 j O LORD, our Lord,
How excellent is Your name in all the earth!
