Praying the Psalms -Psalm 8-

Psalm 8

To the choirmaster: according to The Gittith. A Psalm of David.


O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
You have set your glory above the heavens.
Out of the mouth of babies and infants,
you have established strength because of your foes,
to still the enemy and the avenger.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
what is man that you are mindful of him,
and the son of man that you care for him?

Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned him with glory and honor.
You have given him dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under his feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.

O Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

O my Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!
Among your people, your name is exalted,
among the nations, all of them, Your name is great.
Your name is above all those who love you,
and above all those who hate you.
Your name, Your character,
is majestic because it is who You are.
Your name is majestic;
Rock of Ages,
Great I Am,
King of Kings,
Strong Tower,
O Lord, You have established strength,
over your enemies.
We pray for our babies and infants,
for our sons and daughters,
let your praise be in their lips,
let them sing of the glories of your Name!

Lord, seeing your creation,
the perfection of it;
seeing the order with which you have created all of it,
draws me to your feet.
Father, why did it please you to look at me?
Why did you turn your eyes toward me to save me?
I am one. So little. A sinful one. Guilty.
And yet, You are mindful of me?
You care for me?
Lord, that is amazing!
Your name is majestic:
Merciful Father,
The Amen.

how majestic is your name in all the earth!
