How Excellent Your Name In All the Earth!
At our ladies' Bible study this week, Crystal challenged us to read Psalm 8 and even sit outside one night to view and reflect on the wonders of God's creation. As you do that, you might enjoy singing Psalm 8. The text we use in church is below-here is the tune!
LORD, our Lord, in all the earth
How excellent Your name! You above the heav'ns have set
The splendor of Your fame. From the mouths of infants young You the power of praise compose
In the face of enemies
To stop avenging foes.
When I view the skies above
Which Your own fingers made
When I see the moon and stars Which You in order laid, What is man so frail and weak That You should remember him? What can be the son of man That You should care for him?
Next to God You have made man, With light and honor crowned.
You placed him above Your works; Beneath him all is found:
Oxen, sheep, and all wild beasts,
Birds, and fish the oceans claim. LORD, our Lord, in all the earth How excellent Your name!
