Day Eight of the Psalm Journey!

 And day one of my second week at this!

Ooh! Looking at Psalm 8, I most definitely want to pray this back to God! And so I shall...

Oh God! Our Lord!
   how majestic is your name in all the earth!
   You have put your glory
   in the heavens.
Oh, you enthrall us!

Through the praise of children and infants
   you have established a stronghold against your enemies,
   to silence the foe and the avenger.
Therefore, let us never stop praising you, O God!

When I consider your heavens,
   the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
   which you have set in place,
what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
   human beings that you care for them?
We are baffled by your love.
   Thank you, Oh loving God!

You have made them a little lower than the angels
   and crowned them with glory and honor. 
You have made a way for us to become one with You:
  I never cease to be amazed by that!

You made them rulers over the works of your hands;
  you put everything under their feet:
all flocks and herds,
   and the animals of the wild, 
the birds in the sky,
   and the fish in the sea,
   all that swim the paths of the seas. 
Help us to be faithful of that care! 

LORD, our Lord,
   how majestic is your name in all the earth! 
 How majestic is your name in all the earth!!
