Scripture: Psalm 8
1. Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious name All Thy wondrous works proclaim; In the heavens with radiant signs Evermore Thy glory shines. 2. Infant lips Thou dost ordain Wrath and vengeance to restrain; Weakest means fulfill Thy will, Mighty enemies to still. 3. Moon and stars in shining height Nightly tell their Maker's might; Human strength cannot compare With the glory present there. 4. What are we that we should be Loved and visited by Thee, Raised to an exalted height, Crowned with honor in Thy sight? 5. With dominion crowned we stand, O'er the creatures of Thy hand, All to us subjection yield In the sea and air and field. 6. Lord, our Lord, Thy glorious name, All Thy wondrous works proclaim; Thine the name of matchless worth, Excellent in all the earth.
