Domine, Dominus noster
O Lord our Governor, how excellent is your Name in all the world; *
you have set your glory above the heavens!
Out of the mouth of babes and infants you have ordained strength, because of your enemies, *
that you might still the enemy and the avenger.
When I consider your heavens, even the works of your fingers, *
the moon and the stars, which you have ordained.
What is man, that you are mindful of him; *
the son of man, that you visit him?
You made him little lower than the angels, *
to crown him with glory and honor.
You made him to have dominion over the works of your hands, *
and you have put all things in subjection under his feet;
All sheep and oxen, *
even the beasts of the field;
The birds of the air, and the fish of the sea; *
and whatsoever walks through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Governor, *
how excellent is your Name in all the world!
