Psalm 8

Lord, our Lord,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!

You have set you glory
above the heavens.

Through the praise of children and infants
you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
to silence the foe and the avenger.

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

what are mere mortals that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?

You have made them a little lower than the heavenly beings
and crowned them with glory and honour.

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
you put everything under their feet.
