Metrical Psalm 8
|Metre: LM 88 88||Bow Brickhill|
O Lord your name is ever blessed
Throughout the world and heaven’s height;
Your glory’s sung – by babes confessed –
You still the foe’s avenging might.
The sight of moon and stars gives thought –
How God regards our human race;
Below the angels we are caught
Yet crowned by God in glory’s face.
This honour brings a wealth and power:
The world is set beneath our feet;
Eternity fills every hour;
With God our lives are made complete.
