Psalm 8 - 2nd Version
ROTHLEY | Bible Passage
John Goss, 1800-1880
1 O LORD, our Lord, how excellent
In all the earth thy name!
Who hast thy glory set above
The starry frame.
2 From infants' and from sucklings' mouths
Is strength by thee ordained,
That so the avenger may be quelled,
The foe restrained.
3 When I behold thy spacious heavens,
The work of thine own hand,
The moon and stars in order set
By thy command;
4 O, what is man, that thou should'st him
In kind remembrance bear?
Or what the son of man, that thou
For him should'st care?
5 For thou a little lower hast
Him than the angels made;
With honour and with glory thou
Hast crowned his head.
6 Lord of thy works thou hast him made:
All unto him must yield,
All sheep and oxen, yea, and beasts
Which roam the field,
7 Fowl of the air, fish of the sea,
All that pass through the same.
O Lord, our Lord, in all the earth
How great thy name!
1 ¬∂ O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens.
2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.
3 ¬∂ When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained;
4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him?
5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet:
7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field;
8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
