Psalm

God's Glory and Human Dignity

1O LORD, our Lord,

your greatness is seen in all the world!

Your praise reaches up to the heavens;

2it is sung by children and babies.

You are safe and secure from all your enemies;

you stop anyone who opposes you.

3When I look at the sky, which you have made,

at the moon and the stars, which you set in their places —

4what are human beings, that you think of them;

mere mortals, that you care for them?

5Yet you made them inferior only to yourself;

you crowned them with glory and honour.

6You appointed them rulers over everything you made;

you placed them over all creation:

7sheep and cattle, and the wild animals too;

8the birds and the fish

and the creatures in the seas.

9O LORD, our Lord,

your greatness is seen in all the world!
