To the chief Musician upon Gittith, a Psalm of David.
1 O LORD our God, in all the earth
how’s thy name wondrous great!
who hast thy glorious majesty
above the heavens set.
2 Out of the mouth of sucking babes
thy strength thou didst ordain,
that thou might’st still the enemy,
and them that thee disdain.
3 when I thy fingers work, thy heav’ns,
the moon and stars consider,
4 which thou hast set; What’s wretched man
that thou dost him remember?
or what’s the son of man, that thus
him visited thou hast?
5 For next to Angels thou hast him
a little lower plac’d,
and hast with glory crowned him
and comely majesty:
6 And on thy works hast given him
7 all hast thou put under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea,
8 and beasts of field; Fowls of the air,
and fishes of the sea,
and all that pass through paths of seas.
9 O Jehovah our Lord,
is thy name through the world?
