Psalm 8 (NKJV) 

A Psalm of David.

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

 2 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.
         
 3 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers,
         The moon and the stars, which You have ordained,

 4 What is man that You are mindful of him,
         And the son of man that You visit him?
 5 For You have made him a little lower than the angels,[
a]
         And You have crowned him with glory and honor.
         
 6 You have made him to have dominion over the works of Your hands;
         You have put all things under his feet,

 7 All sheep and oxen—
         Even the beasts of the field,

 8 The birds of the air,

         And the fish of the sea
         That pass through the paths of the seas.

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