730. Psalm 8: God, Our God, Your Glorious Name

1 God, our God, your glorious name
all your wondrous works proclaim;
in the heavens with radiant signs
evermore your glory shines.
How great your name!

[Refrain:]
Holy, holy, holy, how great your name!
Yours the name of matchless worth,
excellent in all the earth.
How great your name!

2 Infant voices chant your praise,
telling of your glorious ways;
weakest means work out your will,
mighty enemies to still.
How great your name! [Refrain]

3 Moon and stars in shining height
nightly tell their Maker's might;
when I view the heavens afar,
then I know how small we are.
How great your name! [Refrain]

4 Who are we that we should share
in your love and tender care
raised to an exalted height,
crowned with honor in your sight!
How great your name! [Refrain]

5 With dominion crowned, we stand
o'er the creatures of your hand;
all to us subjection yield,
in the sea and air and field.
How great your name! [Refrain]
