Psalm 8. Domine, Dominus noster.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - First Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. O Lord our Governor, *
    how exalted is your Name in all the world!
  2. Out of the mouths of infants and children *
    your majesty is praised above the heavens.
  3. You have set up a stronghold against your adversaries, *
    to quell the enemy and the avenger.
  4. When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, *
    the moon and the stars you have set in their courses,
  5. What is man that you should be mindful of him? *
    the son of man that you should seek him out?
  6. You have made him but little lower than the angels; *
    you adorn him with glory and honor;
  7. You give him mastery over the works of your hands; *
    you put all things under his feet:
  8. All sheep and oxen, *
    even the wild beasts of the field,
  9. The birds of the air, the fish of the sea, *
    and whatsoever walks in the paths of the sea.
  10. O Lord our Governor, *
    how exalted is your Name in all the world!
