How Majestic Is Your Name


Psalm 8
(English Standard Version)
TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO THE GITTITH. A PSALM OF DAVID.

  • 1O LORD, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
    1You have set your glory above the heavens.
  • 2Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
    2you have established strength because of your foes,
    to still the enemy and the avenger.
  • 3When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
  • 4what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?
  • 5Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
    and crowned him with glory and honor.
  • 6You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
    you have put all things under his feet,
  • 7all sheep and oxen,
    and also the beasts of the field,
  • 8the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
    whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
  • 9O LORD, our Lord,
    how majestic is your name in all the earth!
