His Name is Excellent!

Psalm 8 has always left me in awe at the Lord’s love for us. It speaks of His majesty and creativity, His glory, and His love and care for mankind. Join me in magnifying, praising, and thanking Him, as we read through this Psalm. He is so very good to us!

The Glory of the LORD in Creation
To the Chief Musician. On the instrument of Gath. A Psalm of David.

O LORD, our Lord,
​​How excellent is Your name in all the earth,
​​Who have set Your glory above the heavens!

Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants
​​You have ordained strength,
​​Because of Your enemies,
​​That You may silence the enemy and the avenger.

When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
​​The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,
What is man that You are mindful of him,
​​And the son of man that You visit him?
​​For You have made him a little lower than the angels,fn
​​And You have crowned him with glory and honor.

You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
​​You have put all things under his feet,
​​All sheep and oxen—
​​Even the beasts of the field,
​​The birds of the air,
​​And the fish of the sea
​​That pass through the paths of the seas.

O LORD, our Lord,
​​How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

Truly, our Lord, Your name is excellent! Your name saves, Your name heals; Your name comforts!

I have often asked You, “What is man that You are mindful of him, ​​And the son of man that You visit him?” when I consider how much You love me and am awed at the depth and height, the length and width of Your love. My heart rejoices in my Savior and magnifies Him.

O LORD, our Lord,
​​How excellent is Your name in all the earth!

Amen.
