Representative Text

O Lord, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
When I look at your heavens, the work of our fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have established;
what are human beings that you are mindful of them,
mortals that you care of them?
Yet you have made them a little lower than God,
and crowned them with glory and honor.
You have given them dominion over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
all sheep and oxen,
and also the beasts of the field,
the birds of the air, and the fish of the sea,
whatever passes along the paths of the seas.
O Lord, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

(Gloria Patri may be added)
Glory to the Father and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be forever. Amen.
