Metrical Psalm 8

Metre: LM 88 88Bow 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.
