Psalm 8

Domine, Dominus noster
O Lord our Governor, how excellent is thy Name in all the world *
thou that hast set thy glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of very babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies *
that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
For I will consider thy heavens, even the works of thy fingers *
the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him *
and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
Thou madest him lower than the angels *
to crown him with glory and worship.
Thou makest him to have dominion of the works of thy hands *
and thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet;
All sheep and oxen *
yea, and the beasts of the field;
The fowls of the air, and the fishes of the sea *
and whatsoever walketh through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Governor *
how excellent is thy Name in all the world!
