Representative Text

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 heav'ns,
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 pow'r 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.
