Your Name on the Earth (Psalm 8)

Majestic, O Lord, Your name on the earth,

Your glory, O God, above all the skies,

the voices of infants your praises intone

to silence the noises of all of your foes.

—-

The heavens, O God, the work of your hands,

the moon and the stars, show woman and man,

our smallness of stature in all you have done

and yet you have cared for us in your great love.

—-

Though lower, we’re crowned; created to serve

as stewards of life in the sky, sea and earth.

Majestic, O Lord, is Your name all around.

Your glory, O God, in all places is found.
