Who are you that a Savior should be sent for you? Yet the Lord cared enough to do just that. How majestic is His name!

KJV Text (alt. audio): Chapter 8:

     1 To the chief Musician upon Gittith, A Psalm of David. O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth! who hast set thy glory above the heavens. 2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

     3 When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; 4 What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? 5 For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. 6 Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet: 7 All sheep and oxen, yea, and the beasts of the field; 8 The fowl of the air, and the fish of the sea, and whatsoever passeth through the paths of the seas. 9 O LORD our Lord, how excellent is thy name in all the earth!(KJV)

1. Wondrous King, all glorious, 
Sovereign Lord victorious, 
O, receive our praise with favor! 
From thee welled God’s kindness 
Though we in our blindness 
Strayed from thee, our blessed Saviour. 
Strengthen thou, 
Help us now; 
Let our tongues be singing, 
Thee our praises bringing. 

2. Heavens, spread the story 
Of our Maker’s glory, 
All the pomp of earth obscuring. 
Sun, thy rays be sending, 
Thy bright beams expending, 
Light to all the earth assuring. 
Moon and star, 
Praise afar 
Him who glorious made you; 
The vast heavens aid you. 

3. O my soul, rejoicing, 
Sing, thy praises voicing, 
Sing, with hymns of faith adore him! 
All who here have being, 
Shout, your voices freeing, 
Bow down in the dust before him. 
He is God 
Sabaoth; 
Praise alone the Saviour, 
Here and there for ever. 

4. Hallelujahs render 
To the Lord most tender, 
Ye who know and love the Saviour. 
Hallelujahs sing ye, 
Ye redeemed, O, bring ye 
Hearts that yield him glad behavior. 
Blest are ye 
Endlessly; 
Sinless there for ever, 
Ye shall laud him ever.
