How Excellent In All the Earth
Words: Psalm 8, adapted from "The Book of Psalms," 1920
Music: Mark Graham
1. How excellent in all the earth, Eternal is thy name! Who hast thy glory far advanced above the starry frame. From mouths of infants and of babes Thou hast a strength ordained, That adversaries should be stilled and vengeful foes restrained.
2. When I look up unto the heav'ns which thine own fingers framed; Unto the moon, and to the stars, which were by thee ordained; Than say I, What is man, that he remembered is by Thee, Or what the son of man, that Thou so kind to him should be?
3. For man a little lower than the angels hast Thou made; And placed a crown of glory and of honor on his head. Appointed lord of all thy works; beneath him all things be, All flocks and herds, all beasts and birds, all fishes of the sea.
