Scripture: Psalm 8
Theme: Psalms

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.
