[To the chiefe Musicion vpon Gittith,
a Psalme of Dauid.]
1
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
who hast set thy glory aboue the heauens.
2
Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength, because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemie and the auenger.
3
When I consider thy heauens, the worke of thy fingers, the moone and the starres which thou hast ordained;
4
What is man, that thou art mindfull of him?
and the sonne of man, that thou visitest him?
5
For thou hast made him a little lower then the Angels;
and hast crowned him with glory and honour.
6
Thou madest him to haue dominion ouer the workes of thy hands;
thou hast put all things vnder his feete.
7
All sheepe and oxen, yea and the beasts of the field.
8
The foule of the aire, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoeuer passeth through the paths of the seas.
9
O Lord our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!
