O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy
glory above the heavens.
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.
When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the
stars, which thou hast ordained;
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou
visitest him?
For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him

with glory and honor.
Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put

all things under his feet:
All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; The fowl of the air
and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas.
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
