To the leader:A according to The Gittith.B A PsalmC of David.D
1 O Lord,E our Sovereign,F
how majesticG is your nameH in all the earth!
You have set your gloryI above the heavens.J
2 Out of the mouths of babesK and infantsL
you have foundedM a bulwarkN because of your foes,O
to silenceP the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,Q
the moonR and the starsS that you have established;T
4 what are human beings that you are mindfulU of them,
mortalsV that you care forW them?
5 Yet you have made them a little lowerX than God,Y
and crownedZ them with gloryAA and honor.BB
6 You have given them dominionCC over the works of your hands;
you have put all things under their feet,
7 all sheepDD and oxen,
and also the beastsEE of the field,
8 the birdsFF of the air,GG and the fish of the sea,HH
whatever passes alongII the pathsJJ of the seas.
9 O Lord, our Sovereign,
how majestic is your name in all the earth!
