Bay Psalm Book: Psalm 8

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

lordly authority;

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,

how wondrously-magnificent

is thy name through the world?
