1 O Lord, our Lord, in all the earth,
How excellent Thy Name!
Thy glory Thou hast spread afar
In all the starry frame.

2 From lips of children, Thou, O Lord
Hast mighty strength ordained,
That adversaries should be stilled
And vengeful foes restrained.

3 When I regard the wondrous heavens,
Thy handiwork on high,
The moon and stars ordained by Thee,
O what is man, I cry.

4 O what is man, in Thy regard
To hold so large a place,
And what the son of man, that Thou
Dost visit him in grace.

5 On man Thy wisdom hath bestowed
A power well nigh divine;
With honor Thou hast crowned his head
With glory like to Thine.

6 Thou hast subjected all to him,
And lord of all is he,
Of flocks and herds, and beasts and birds,
And all within the sea.

7 Thy mighty works and wondrous grace
Thy glory, Lord, proclaim,
O Lord, our Lord, in all the earth,
How excellent Thy Name.

The Psalter: with responsive readings, 1912
