|[To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.]||God's Glory & Man's dignity. Psalm 8|
|O LORD, our Lord, |
how majestic is thy name in all the earth!
Thou whose glory above the heavens is chanted
|by the mouth of babes and infants, |
thou hast founded a bulwark because of thy foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.
|When I look at thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, |
the moon and the stars which thou hast established;
|what is man that thou art mindful of him, |
and the son of man that thou dost care for him?
|Yet thou hast made him little less than God, |
and dost crown him with glory and honor.
|Thou hast given him dominion over the works of thy hands; |
thou hast put all things under his feet,
|all sheep and oxen, |
and also the beasts of the field,
|the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea, |
whatever passes along the paths of the sea.
|O Lord, our Lord, |
how majestic is your name in all the earth.
