God's Glory and Man's Honor
8 1 O Lord , our Lord , How majestic is Your name in all the earth , Who have displayed Your splendor above the heavens ! 2 From the mouth of infants and nursing babes You have established strength Because of Your adversaries , To make the enemy and the revengeful cease .
3 When I consider Your heavens , the work of Your fingers , The moon and the stars , which You have ordained ; 4 What is man that You take thought of him, And the son of man that You care for him? 5 Yet You have made him a little lower than God , And You crown him with glory and majesty ! 6 You make him to rule 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 through the paths of the seas . 9 O Lord , our Lord , How majestic is Your name in all the earth !
