Psalm 8 

A hymn of praise.
Infants and stars
and all creation sing praise.
Marvel in Godís glory and join this song.

Lord our God,
the whole world tells

the greatness of your name.

Your glory reaches

beyond the stars.

Even the babble of infants
declares your strength,

your power to halt

the enemy and avenger.

I see your handiwork
in the heavens:

the moon and the stars

you set in place.

What is humankind
that you remember them,

the human race

that you care for them?

You treat them like gods,
dressing them in glory and splendor.

You give them charge of the earth,

laying all at their feet:

cattle and sheep,
wild beasts,

birds of the sky,

fish of the sea,

every swimming creature.

Lord our God,
the whole world tells

the greatness of your name.
