How Majestic …

Psalm 8:1-9 NLT


[1] O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth! Your glory is higher than the heavens.

[2] You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you.

[3] When I look at the night sky and see the work of your fingers- the moon and the stars you set in place-

[4] what are mere mortals that you should think about them, human beings that you should care for them?

[5] Yet you made them only a little lower than God and crowned them with glory and honor.

[6] You gave them charge of everything you made, putting all things under their authority-

[7] the flocks and the herds and all the wild animals,

[8] the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and everything that swims the ocean currents.

[9] O LORD, our Lord, your majestic name fills the earth!
