How excellent in all the earth, Lord, our Lord, is thy name!Tune: WINCHESTER OLD
Published in 8 hymnals
1 How excellent in all the earth,
Lord, our Lord, is thy name!
who hast thy glory far advanced
above the starry frame.
2 When I look up unto the heavens,
which thine own fingers framed,
unto the moon, and to the stars,
which were by thee ordained;
3 Then say I, What is man, that he
remembered is by thee?
Or what the son of man, that thou
so kind to him should’st be?
4 For thou a little lower hast
him than the angels made;
With glory and with dignity
thou crownèd hast his head.
