P9. Psalm 8: How excellent in all the earth

1 How excellent in all the earth,
Lord, our Lord, is thy name!
Who hast thy glory far advanc’d
above the starry frame.

2 From infants’ and from sucklings’ mouth
thou didest strength ordain,
For thy foes’ cause, that so thou might’st
th’ avenging foe restrain.

3 When I look up unto the heav’ns,
which thine own fingers fram’d,
Unto the moon, and to the stars,
which were by thee ordain’d;

4 Then say I, What is man, that he
remember’d is by thee?
Or what the son of man, that thou
so kind to him should’st be?

5 For thou a little lower hast
him than the angels made;
With glory and with dignity
thou crowned hast his head.

6 Of thy hands’ works thou mad’st him lord,
all under’s feet didst lay;
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and beasts
that in the field do stray;

8 Fowls of the air, fish of the sea,
all that pass through the same.
9 How excellent in all the earth,
Lord, our Lord, is thy name!
