Psalm 8

1 Our Lord and Ruler, your name is wonderful everywhere on earth! You let your glory be seen in the heavens above.

2 With praises from children and from tiny infants, you have built a fortress. It makes your enemies silent, and all who turn against you are left speechless.

3 I often think of the heavens your hands have made, and of the moon and stars you put in place.

4 Then I ask, “Why do you care about us humans? Why are you concerned for us weaklings?”

5 You made us a little lower than you yourself, and you have crowned us with glory and honor.

6 You let us rule everything your hands have made. And you put all of it under our power—

7 the sheep and the cattle, and every wild animal,

8 the birds in the sky, the fish in the sea, and all ocean creatures.

9 Our Lord and Ruler, your name is wonderful everywhere on earth!
