Response:
O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth.

1 O Lord our Governor, how glorious is your name in all the earth!

2 Your majesty above the heavens is yet recounted
by the mouths of babes and sucklings.

3 You have founded a strong defence against your adversaries,
to quell the enemy and the avenger. [Response]

4 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars which you have set in order,

5 what are we, that you should be mindful of us:
what are we, that you should care for us? [Response]

6 Yet you have made us little less than gods,
and have crowned us with glory and honour.

7 You have given us dominion over your handiwork:
and have put all things in subjection beneath our feet, [Response]

8 all sheep and oxen, and all the creatures of the field,

9 the birds of the air and the fish of the sea,
and everything that moves in the pathways of the great waters. [Response]
