Psalm 8 or
Coverdale
Domine, Dominus noster

1O LORD our Governor, *
how exalted is your Name in all the world!

2Out of the mouths of infants and children *
your majesty is praised above the heavens.

3You have set up a stronghold against your adversaries, *
to quell the enemy and the avenger.

4When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, *
the moon and the stars you have set in their courses,

5What is man that you should be mindful of him? *
the son of man that you should seek him out?

6You have made him but little lower than the angels; *
you adorn him with glory and honor;

7You give him mastery over the works of your hands; *
you put all things under his feet:

8All sheep and oxen, *
even the wild beasts of the field,

9The birds of the air, the fish of the sea, *
and whatsoever walks in the paths of the sea.

10O LORD our Governor, *
how exalted is your Name in all the world!
